GW Law professor appointed President of American Society of International Law
A professor at GW Law has been made the new President of American Society of International Law.
Professor Sean D Murphy, the Manatt/Ahn Professor of International Law at the George Washington University Law School will become the 48th President of the American Society of International Law (ASIL) for a two-year term.
Speaking about his recent appointment Professor Murphy says, "Given the challenges today on so many transnational issues – including trade, cyber-security, non-proliferation, climate change, refugees and armed conflict – now more than ever ASIL plays a critical role in convening stakeholders from across the world to discuss and promote solutions through international law and institutions. And it is a real honour to be elected by ASIL's diverse membership, who come from more than 100 countries, to lead ASIL in fulfilling its mission."
With almost 4,000 members, ASIL was founded in 1906 and is a non-profit, non-partisan organisation based in Washington DC with the aim of promoting and helping the study of international law as well as promoting the establishment and maintenance of international relations on the basis of law and justice. Professor Murphy's presidency is a part-time position, and he will continue as a full-time professor at GW Law.
