Welcome to the New York State Bar
Association’s International Section (the “International Section” or “Section”).
The International Section is a dynamic group of attorneys based all over the
world that practice international law. Membership in our Section offers many
opportunities to participate in seminars and conferences on important
international law topics, meet and network with other international attorneys
and stay current with developments in international law through those events
and our leading international publications.
We invite you to explore our more than
40 substantive law committees, including committees on Energy and Natural
Resources, International Banking, Corporate Counsel, Litigation and Tax. Once a
member of our Section, you are welcome to join the committees that reflect your
areas of interest and practice. Regardless of your membership in the
International Section, however, you are more than welcome to attend a number of
our committee programs.
If you practice outside of the United
States, we invite you to consider joining one of our overseas
chapters. With over 65 chapters in places like London, Colombia, Beijing,
Sao Paolo, and Singapore, there are fellow International Section members in
nearly every jurisdiction around the world.
In addition to our committees and
chapters, which provide professional growth and networking opportunities, we
encourage members to participate as organizers, speakers or attendees at our
yearly educational programs and networking events and to contribute their views
on our discussion forums.
Our International Section publications
- The New York International Law Review, which provides substantive articles related
to the practice of international law on such topics as NAFTA, the
collection of money judgments outside the U.S., foreign direct investments
and trade agreements
- The International Law Practicum, which features peer-written,
substantive articles relating to the practical needs of attorneys in
an international setting, emphasizing clinical matters and exploring the
application of international law for the generalist.
You are also invited to attend the
following events that our Section has planned in the coming months:
- Our signature Global Law Week on June 11-13, in New York City, featuring an
International Law Bridging the Gap program
on June 14-15.
- Our Seasonal Meeting on October 24-26 in Montreal, Canada.
- Our Annual Meeting on
January 14, 2019 in New York, NY.

sponsored programs can always be found at www.nysba.org/ilp
