NESL ILS


New England School of Law Boston, Massachusetts USA Allisha Kharbanda, Co-Chair


The International Law Society of New England School of Law (NESL) is the most active and suc- cessful it has been its history. Our goal for the 2013-2014 school year is to promote awareness and understanding of international law through providing opportunities for studying, research, and career networking. Many students who join the organization have some sort of interests in


the international realm of law, however may be unaware which path to take. Through encourag- ing students to communicate and cooperate among other law students who are interested in international law, NESL ILS hopes to increase op- portunities to learn about other cultures and legal systems worldwide.


What exactly encompasses a successful NESL ILS year? To begin, in mid-September NESL ILS began the year by holding an informal “mixer” at a local restaurant to get over 40 old and new mem- bers to mingle, meet the new Executive Board for the upcoming year, and brainstorm events to focus on this year.


The International Bar Association plans to hold their annual conference in Boston this year, a huge opportunity for New England Students. IBA’s Annual Conference is the largest gather- ing of international legal community members in the world, with more than 4,500 lawyer and legal professionals from around the world. NESL ILS encourages and plans to have members attend the conference for experience and an opportunity to meet people with the same interests from all over the world. Besides the IBA Annual Confer- ence week in Boston, New England School of Law students also plan to attend the annual In- ternational Law Weekend in New York. Last year we had almost our entire full members attend the conference, and are hoping for more full mem- bers to join us this year.


Another upcoming event is an event that has never been held at NESL before. On November 15, over fourteen NESL organizations will come together to collaborate to hold a charity event, World AIDS Day. The goal of this event to bring awareness of AIDS and the impact it has inter- nationally, as well as raise funds to go towards a specific charity raising funds to support AIDS re- search and cure. NESL organizations plan to hold a Talent Show. The students will vote by placing money in jars, and that money will go towards
