On behalf of the ABA Section of International Law (ABA International), I am pleased to invite you to a very special 2013 Spring Meeting in Washington, DC, April 23-27, 2013. ABA International’s Spring Meeting is one of the world’s most important gatherings of international lawyers. Last year’s Spring Meeting in New York welcomed over 1,300 attendees from 80 countries.

US Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg has already agreed to address Section members at the Spring Meeting. As of this writing, invitations are pending with other keynote speakers of great stature and insight. Experts in every field of international law and practice will be speakers at this meeting in Washington.

Spring Meeting attendees will include high-level practitioners with the largest and most respected global law firms; lawyers with the most prominent regional and national firms inside and outside the U.S.; U.S.-based small-firm and solo practitioners with significant international practices; corporate and in-house counsel; lawyers serving in government or with non-governmental organizations and inter-governmental organizations; and academics. ABA International is the home within the ABA for the world’s leading international practitioners, and the 2013 Spring Meeting is a “Must-Attend” meeting for lawyers with a practice or interest in international legal issues.
