Why You Should Join ABILA
First, membership in the ABILA grants you access to all the exceptional conferences and programs run by the organization, including International Law Weekend and Regional ILWs. Second, membership allows you to participate in ABILA committees, giving you the opportunity to make an impact on international law. Third, membership in the American Branch means membership in the ILA and you can apply to be one of the Branch’s nominated members on ILA Committees or Study Groups at the international level. Finally, you’ll receive Branch publications and have the opportunity to participate in ILA Biennial events.
Students currently enrolled in law programs in the United States can become members for free and have the same access as other members. This is an incredible benefit – so take advantage while you can!
