International Legal Ethics Conference VII - The Ethics & Regulation of Lawyers Worldwide: Comparative and Interdisciplinary PerspectivesJuly 14–16, 2016
Fordham Law School
In Fordham Law School's new building, steps from Central Park
Every two years, the International Association of Legal Ethics (IAOLE) brings together several hundred scholars and lawyers from around the world. The next conference, International Legal Ethics Conference VII, will be held in the United States on July 14-16, 2016. It will be hosted by Fordham Law School, which is in the heart of New York City -- steps from Lincoln Center, Central Park and many restaurants, and easily accessible to theatres, museums and national attractions.
We expect approximately 300 participants, who will present papers, speak on panels, and engage in informal discussions concerning the legal profession and legal ethics. Participants will be invited to organize panel discussions and present papers addressing both the legal profession in their own regions and cross-cutting and comparative questions.
In the tradition of past ILECs, we want to ensure that the 2016 conference is stimulating, innovative, and enjoyable—a welcome opportunity to meet and exchange ideas with colleagues from around the globe.
Before formal planning commences, we want to hear your ideas about how to make the 2016 conference as rewarding as possible.
Email us with your suggestions.
