be given to top contestants in a bid to promote the general interest of the incoming students in international law.


University of Alabama School of Law Tuscaloosa, Alabama USA Brittany Hoover, President

The Alabama International Law Student Associa- tion has been rolling like the tide so far this semes- ter! We started off the year with the annual Get on Board Day at the law school where we gave out candy and promoted our club to the student body. Shortly thereafter, we held a farewell party for the Swiss exchange students at our school. The exchange students were at the university for close to six weeks and were able to take a variety of classes and experience southern hospitality before going back to Switzerland!


Our students were able to spend the previous summer in Switzerland with the same students and study international and comparative law. The end of this trip was bittersweet as it marked the end of the Swiss-Alabama relationship this year!

In addition, we also have two events featuring guest speakers planned for this semester. The first event will provide lunch to members and is open to the entire student body and will feature Alan Enlsen, a partner at Maynard and Cooper and international law scholar who will discuss his work and how students can enter the internation- al law field.

The second event will feature international law professors and scholars from Birmingham. The guests will have lunch with students interested in practicing international law and help them find prospective employment opportunities in the in- ternational law field.

Besides academic events, the club has several social events planned where members can prac-

tice their foreign language skills while socializing. These events will include wine and cheese night and a margarita happy hour!

Finally, the club has many exciting new opportuni- ties planned for next semester such as more aca- demic lunches, a welcoming party for Australian exchange students, the Jessup Moot Court Com- petition, which students are applying for now, and of course, more social events!


University of Georgia School of Law Athens, Georgia USA Stephany Sheriff, Secretary

The Georgia Society of International and Compar- ative Law (GSICL) has many events planned for this year.
