American Society of International Law
The American Society of International Law (ASIL) is a nonprofit, nonpartisan, educational membership organization, based in Washington, DC. It was founded in 1906 under the direction of, among others, James Brown Scott and Elihu Root, the first ASIL president. The Society was chartered by the United States Congress in 1950. Its mission is to foster the study of international law, and to promote the establishment and maintenance of international relations on the basis of law and justice.
ASIL holds Category II Consultative Status to the United Nations Economic and Social Council, and is a constituent society of the American Council of Learned Societies. It currently has nearly 4,000 members from more than 100 nations, including attorneys, academics, corporate counsel, judges, representatives of governments and non-governmental organizations, international civil servants, students and others interested in international law.
Among the Society's publications are The American Journal of International Law, International Legal Materials, and Proceedings of the ASIL Annual Meeting, all three of which are available to members online via publishing partner JSTOR. The Society's highlight events are its Annual Meeting, begun in 1906 and held in Washington, DC, and its Midyear Meeting, begun in 2010 and held in various regional capitals of the U.S.
