Why Join ASIL?

"ASIL is hugely important. It creates a community of individuals engaged with international law as scholars, practitioners, and policymakers who can both collaborate with and challenge one another. It promotes the most rigorous standards of thinking about international law and related subjects. And it stands for the importance of international law to any society committed to the rule of law."

Donald Donovan, Partner, Debevoise & Plimpton, LLP

"ASIL membership has been an essential part of my professional development, giving me access to a global network of international lawyers with whom I've had the privilege of working on ASIL projects, as well as the opportunity to share my own scholarship in international, comparative, and transnational law."

Diane Amann, Professor, University of Georgia School of Law

"ASIL membership is a great way to keep up while teaching around the world. Thank you so much.... helpful for my students too!"

Carrie Menkel-Meadow Chancellor's Professor of Law, University of California-Irvine School of Law
