In November, the Canadian Council on Interna- tional Law annual conference (CCIL) took place in Ottawa. Due to the longstanding relationship between ILSA UOttawa and CCIL, we were once again able to organize a group registration dis- count for our members to attend the three day conference. An unprecedented 30 students took advantage of this offer, and several more re- ceived complimentary admission as volunteers. The conference involved an impressive array of professionals from around the world speaking on the theme “Contemporary Actors and Their Ac- tions: A New Look at the Formation of Interna- tional Law.”

ILSA UOttawa is now considering applications for next year’s executive and elections will take place sometime in early April. This year’s execu- tive looks forward to seeing what the next gen- eration will bring!

as some were unable to find free seats. At this meeting, executive board members gave pre- sentations on various activities of our society such as moot court competitions, our sub-com- missions and student law journal. Many students filled out membership forms after the meeting and ILS ILSA welcomed new members after a long while.

In order to attract as many potential members as we could, we held our first event “Career in In- ternational Law” on November 20. The first panel was based on how moot court competitions im- pacted on career, as we believed this would be an effective way to promote moot court competi- tions. The panelists were some of Turkey’s best lawyers and we requested them to illustrate how beneficial mooting was for a law career, amongst other things.

The Istanbul University Law School International Law Society (ILS ILSA) is the first and the most reputable ILSA Chapter in Turkey. Founded in 1993, ILS has been an ILSA chapter since 1996. Despite its well-established roots, our interna- tional law society was not active in the recent years and this year, we were determined to re- juvenate it.

In order to promote ILS ILSA, we organized a meet-and-greet on October 9. We were thrilled by the overwhelming participation of students

The second panel was titled “ILSA and Career”, in which we hosted the first three presidents of ILS ILSA, who are also attorneys at Turkey’s top law firms. In this panel, we aimed to familiarize participants with the successful past of our ILSA Chapter and to provide them with an answer as to why they should join our chapter. It was a great opportunity for all of us to benefit from experi- ences and advice of former presidents who were very eager to help us in any way they could.

After the career day, new members were excited to be more involved in ILS ILSA. The structure of our chapter, which consists of three committees and their sub-commissions, enables members to take part in projects and events. ILS ILSA members have the opportunity to participate in 9 different sub-commissions which are based on various topics such as human rights, the Middle East, migration and international tribunals and or- ganizations. These commissions gathered peri- odically and within their scope, discussed recent legal issues and planned academic events.
