The International Law Social provides an informal atmosphere for lawyers, students, and professors working in international law in Ottawa to meet, network, enjoy some great food and even better company. Initiated by the International Law Group at the Faculty of Law, University of Ottawa in the Fall of 2013, this Fall and Winter event has quickly become a major success.

It is an excellent opportunity for students to meet international lawyers from government, law firms, NGOs and businesses. They can learn, first-hand, about real life practice and career opportunities in international law.  Similarly, practitioners can interact with professors and lawyers-to-be in an informal setting and network with colleagues in the international law field whom they do not normally see in their day-to-day lives.  For everyone, the International Law Social is an enriching and fun experience.

Since late October, Professor Lévesque and Ms. Logvin have assumed their positions for a three year term. During the recent CCIL general annual meeting, members thanked outgoing President Marie-Claude Boisvert and Treasurer Ilario Maiolo for their commitment and good work over the last few years.

Sharing a passion for international law and international dispute settlement, the new President and Treasurer look forward to working with the new Board as well as the broader membership and partners, in Canada and abroad.

Upon assuming her role, Professor Lévesque noted "It is an honor to assume the CCIL presidency at a time when international law remains so relevant to Canada and the world. We are fortunate in Canada to be able to count on an international law community that is rich, active and diverse. I will be happy to work with CCIL members and other partners to help achieve its mission".
