Southwestern Law School Los Angeles, CA

International Law Society


The International Law Society at Southwestern serves as an informational forum for students who are interested in the various fields of international law. General informational meetings are held once a semester and various panels, seminars, and brown-bag discussions are hosted monthly. All events are open to Southwestern students and those interested are invited to participate.

On-Campus Speakers Program

The International Law Society sponsors an on-campus speakers program, which includes presentations by judges, transnational law practitioners, and scholars immersed in the various avenues of international law. Some topics include international trade and business, human rights issues, and foreign relations. The International Law Society seeks to educate and expose the student body to the many and varied career opportunities in international law.

Faculty Advisor

Members of Southwestern's International Law Society are fortunate to have Professor Robert Lutz - past chair of the International Law Section of the American Bar Association, past editor-in-chief of The International Lawyer and former chair of the International Law Section of the Association of American Law Schools - as the faculty advisor. Professor Lutz has extensive experience in the field of international law and may be contacted by students for both academic and career consultation.
