Annual Spring Meeting, April 28-May 1
Internanatnal Law and Business in a Changing World

he Section's Annual Spring Meet-
ing will be held in Washington,
D.C. April 28-May 1, 1993, at the
Capital Hilton Hotel. More than 80 speak-
ers will participate in over 25 programs.
In addition, this year's Annual Spring
Meeting initiates the Section's new excit-
ing International Practitioners' Work-
shop Series. The Series is intended to
provide How To programs on several

subjects at each of our Section's major
meetings, thus offering younger lawyers
and lawyers desiring to obtain new ca-
pabilities, the opportunity to develop their
skills as inlernational practitioners. The
initial topics are: How To Carry Out an
ICSID Arbitration, How To Draft an
International Joint Venture Agreement,
and How To File an Antidumping Peti-
tion on Behalf of U.S. Industries.

CEELI and ILEX to Place Polish
Lawyers in U.S. Firms

he Central and East European Law
Initiative (CEELI), an ABA project
developed by the Section of Inter-
national Law and Practice, in conjunc-
tion with the Section's ILEX Committee,
will bring up to six lawyers from Poland
for individual placements within Ameri-
can law offices throughout the United
States. Polish lawyers will concentrate on
American commercial law practice. This
pilot Polish program is a component of
CEELI's Commercial Law Reform Project,
funded by the United States Agency for
International Development.
The Polish participants are scheduled to
arrive in the United States in May 1993
for a three-month placement culminating
in a presentation by the Polish partici-
pants at the Section's Annual Meeting in

New York in early August. The Polish
lawyers selected for the program will
have a working knowledge of English.
CEELI will fund the overseas travel ex-
penses, administrative costs, and other
related costs associated with the pro-
gram. It is anticipated that the host Amer-
ican firms will share in the overall costs
by assigning a lawyer-mentor to work
closely with the Polish lawyer, and by
providing some financial assistance in
defraying the cost of living expenses.
Law firms or corporate law offices inter-
ested in hosting a Polish lawyer under
this program should contact Marcia Wiss,
Vice-Chair of the ILEX Committee, do
Whitman & Ransom, 1215 17th Street,
N.W., Washington, DC 20036; (202) 887-
0353; fax: (202) 293-8684. E

A wide variety of programs on issues of
importance to Section members will be
presented including: Legal Developments
in Russia; Privatization in Central Eu-
rope: Policy Choices and Practical Ap.
proaches; Opening New Markets for Air
Carriers; Transnational Bankruptcies: Co-
operation and Conflict Between Nations;
The New Agenda in International Envi-
ronmental Law; Presenting Evidence to
International Tribunals; Transfer Pricing:
How the Internal Revenue Code's Re-

porters; The EC's New Joint Venture
Guidelines: Policy and Practice; Greater
China: Contradictions of Converging
Economies; and Doing Business in Latin
America: New Landscapes in Adminis-
trative Law.
With the new Administration now in
place, this year's program should prove
to be exceptionally interesting and rele-
vant to all of our Section members. We
hope you will all be able to join us in
