American Society of International Law
The American Society of International Law (ASIL), founded in 1906, was chartered by the United States Congress in 1950 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. ASIL is headquartered in Washington, D.C.
Among the Society's publications are The American Journal of International Law (published four times a year), International Legal Materials (published every other month since 1962), Benchbook on International Law, and Proceedings of the ASIL Annual Meeting.
