Hello (again, after a long respite) ILS Members,
Welcome to the NEW California Lawyers Association-lnternational Law Newsletter (“CLA-INT’L News”)! As the inaugural Editor-in-Chief (EIC) thirty-three years ago of the California Bar’s International Law Section Newsletter (in 1987-90), I return—with assistance from Managing Editor Tiffany Heah—to publish this online quarterly newsletter containing: announcements, commentary, international law news alerts, Section events announcements, and other relevant information for California international law practitioners. We are committed to highlighting and promoting California international law practice. Future columns will offer opinions and focus on international legal issues affecting transnational legal practice in California.
I welcome your comments, contributions and assistance in making our members aware of ILS activities, programs, law and policy developments, publications and projects. Please write or contact me at the following: firstname.lastname@example.org; (213)610-4850.
Wishing you all the best,
*Treusch Distinguished Professor Emeritus of International Legal Studies, Southwestern Law School; Member, CLA-ILS Executive Board; Editor-in-Chief, California Lawyers Association-International Law (CLA-ILS) Newsletter; Former Chair, ABA Section of International Law and EIC, The International Lawyer; Current Co-chair, ABA-Senior Lawyers International Committee; and Member, U.S. State Department Advisory Committee on International Law.
