The International Law Practicum features peer-written, substantive articles relating to the practical needs of attorneys in an international setting, emphasizing clinical matters as opposed to academic, exploring the application of international law for the generalist rather than theoretical discussions for the expert. Edited by Torsten Kracht, Esq. (Editor-in-Chief), and Dunniela Kaufman (Chapter News Editor), assisted by Beatriz Marques, the International Law Practicum is published twice per year by the International Section and distributed to Section members free of charge.

The International Law Practicum is published as a benefit for members of the International Section and is copyrighted by the New York State Bar Association.
