Bill Walker, Director at Burford, will be speaking at the panel “Making International Law More Diverse: Practical approaches and workable solutions” organized by the Minorities in International Law Interest Group (MILIG). The event will take place at the ASIL 2022 Annual Meeting on April 8 at 3:30pm EDT.
The session will feature short presentations on innovative ways to increase diversity in the practice of international law, including increasing access to information by providing a platform for diverse opinions, creating economic incentives for diverse teams and implementing systematic recruitment policies to foster diversity. The speakers will also have a roundtable discussion to explore these approaches across various fields of international law and brainstorm other potential solutions. Bill will be joined by Monica Hakimi (University of Michigan Law School), Shuba Sastry (U.S. Department of State) and Mélida Hodgson (Arnold & Porter).

The Society's nearly 4,000 members from more than 100 nations include attorneys, academics, corporate counsel, judges, representatives of governments and non-governmental organizations, international civil servants, students, and others interested in international law.
