ILSA Chapter Happenings

event with AtlAs- the “Atlanta International Arbi- tration Society Panel”, and a co-hosted event with the ABA Section of International Law- the “Path- ways to Employment in International Law Panel”. We have extended an invitation to all four Geor- gia law schools ILS members and their faculty to attend both panels. As we plan and coordinate event details, we will include ILS from each of the four law schools who are interested in participat- ing in these two events.

These two final events of the year will bring in- teresting and relevant topics to light for law stu- dents, faculty and attorneys and encourage dia- logue and sharing of educational and professional information about the development and direction of arbitration in international commercial transac- tions as well as get students thinking about ca- reer paths to this and other areas in international law.

Students at Temple University Beasley School of Law have always showed great interest in inter- national law, and it has been the mission of our ILSA Chapter to provide the student body many opportunities to be involved. Through on-going collaborations with Temple Law’s Institute for In- ternational Law and Public Policy, LL.M. students, exchange students, and current students we have continued our goal of learning from one another and preparing our students for work on the Inter- national stage.

Last school year, with immigration reform being a hot topic, we were able to host debates between some of Temple Law’s renowned professors who were able to engage students on the issues from both sides of the isle. As a follow-up we were able to bring in speakers who were on the fore-

front of the immigration debate to expose some of the issues for those interested in that area of the law. Other events included career panels for those unsure of how to navigate a career in Inter- national Law, a lecture about International Abor- tion Laws, and a presentation by human rights attorney Noura Erakat.

The level of interest the incoming class has ex- pressed in ILS pleases Temple Law’s ILS board, and we are further elated by the wealth of expe- rience the incoming class brings. To kick off the year, we were happy to host a coffee sale that was well received by the student body. Also, the Chapter has hosted a Happy Hour in the heart of Philadelphia as a way for the International stu- dents to meet the rest of our student body. The event allowed for each of us to learn the nuances of legal careers around the world, and enjoy the company of wonderful people.

The month of October promises to be even more exciting as the Court of Appeals will be hearing AMS Associated v. U.S., a case on appeal from the Court of International Trade, on October 8 at Temple Law’s Moot Court room.

In the coming school year, the Chapter plans to continue it’s goal of providing more opportuni- ties for exposure to International issues, through collaborations with other local law schools, par- ticipation with ILSA events, and also continued participation in international law opportunities in Philadelphia and around the globe.
