The International Law Section was founded in 1987 to serve California lawyers handling international legal matters in a wide variety of areas, including corporate and business transactions, immigration, litigation and arbitration, tax, regulatory and trade matters, bankruptcy, intellectual property and family law.
The Section organizes programs and events around the state, as well as publishes and distributes two key publications -- The California International Law Journal, a collection of practical articles on various aspects of international practice, and an online law newsletter, The California International Law Newsletter.
Membership is open to California lawyers as well as to attorneys and other interested professionals and students worldwide.
Free to Members: The California International Law Section Newsletter is sent monthly to International Law Section members via e-mail.
Free to Members: The California International Law Journal, published biannually, features in-depth treatment of important practice topics, forms of agreements used in international practice, and other information of interest to cross-border practitioners.
The International Law Section presents MCLE accredited programs throughout the year, regularly attracting attorneys and academicians for a weekday or weekend of discussion of current public and private international law topics. For news about upcoming programs, see Education.
International Law Section members can satisfy their MCLE obligation by attending or speaking at Section programs. The Section also offers ongoing opportunities for participatory MCLE credit through online audio and video programs, and self-study MCLE credit through audiocassettes of programs.
