International Law Society
The International Law Society promotes educational and social interaction among law students interested in the various frontiers of both public and private international law. With the world economy becoming increasingly globalized, the International Law Society recognizes the need to highlight that all areas of law—from admiralty to taxation—have universal connections. The International Law Society sponsors social events and hosts speakers that facilitate cultural exchange and academic discussion about legal issues on the international level. In general, this society hosts events with many other student organizations in the law school community to reflect how intertwined all areas of law are on a global scale. Annually, the International Law Society collects bars of soap and other toiletries to benefit the people of Haiti.
