Welcome Back

... to another year of that wonderful
experience we all know as Law School.
Hope your summers were all enjoyable,
or at the very least, productive.
There's been a lot going on behind
the scenes at ILSA while you were
gone, all of which is covered in the
newsletter and the packets sent to each
Chapter in early September. Make sure
everyone is filled in on the details.
New officers
ILSA has all new officers this year.
Former Chair Bob Brown has been
succeeded by his St. Louis University
counterpart Elizabeth Hoover. Laura
Lehman of Brooklyn Law School,
knownforherpast work with the Journal
Conference, has replaced Mark Zaid as
Vice-Chair.
Denise Hodge's term as Executive
Director also ended this year, and she
left the office to Brett Lorenzen, a recent
graduate of the University of Iowa
College of Law, in early July. Brett will
fill the role of Executive Director, as
well as Administrator of the Jessup
Competition, for the next two years.
We'd like to thank, once again, the

former officers for the many hours of
long work they put in, and the many
achievements they made during their
terms.
Computers
The ASIL recently replaced all of
the computers at Tillar House, and the
Executive Office is still trying to finish
the conversion of ILSA records. While
we're transferring them, we're also trying

The ILSA Fall Congress and the
International Law Association's
International Law Weekend will be held
in conjunction with each other again
this year. The events are scheduled for
Friday and Saturday November 5 & 6,
and will be held at the Bar Association
Building in New York. ILSA has
reserved hotel space, and formal
registration packets and schedules for
both events will be sent to all chapters in
late-September.
ILSA is being charged for the use
of the Bar Association's space this year,
so we will be forced to cut back a bit on
programming. The ILSA Regional
Committee will meet Friday morning,
and ILSA Chapter and Journal oriented
workshops will be held Friday afternoon,
to be followed, hopefully, by a tour of
the UN Building. The Fall Congress
will meet on Saturday morning, and the
infamous Career Panel will again be
held on Saturday afternoon.
Though we had to cut our
substantive panels, the ILA is offering a
full-slate of activities for the weekend,
including panels on Environmental Law,
The New International Order, and The

to get everything re-written and updated.
It's been a slow process.
A number of the changes this has
produced are already evident. Member
surveys have been implemented this
year to help us better track and serve the
ILSA Membership. The Newsletter has
been moved in-house, and we'll be
working on improving regularity during
the coming year. Projects such as the
(cont'd page 3)

Protection of Women under Current
Human Rights Norms. The ILA panels
will feature speakers such as Annie
Petsonk of the EPA (a big hit at the
ILSA Congress last year), Edith Brown
Weiss, Ambassador Edward Perkins
(US Permanent Representative to the
UN), and former National Security
Council Advisor Theodore Sorenson.
With more time to devote to the
Career Panel, we hope this year to
expand both its size and length. Look
for it to involve a substantive agenda of
advice, as well as an at-large question
and answer session with the panelists.
Also, please note the information
on ILSA Regional Organization that
was enclosed Chapter Mailings. Formal
incorporation of Regions into the
National structure will be discussed at
length that weekend, and we'd like to
see all chapters represented in NY to
express their opinions and aid us in
making these decisions.
Make sure your members are
informed of the date for this year's Fall
Congress, and keep an eye on your
mailbox. We look forward to seeing all
of you there!4
