What the International Law Society Does
The International Law Society conducts many events, programs and symposiums throughout the academic school year. ILS facilitates these events to foster awareness in the legal community at the University of Baltimore about various international concerns. Past ILS events have included the Annual Middle East and Africa Symposium, Careers in International Law Symposium and hosting international practitioners as guest speakers. The Fourth Annual Africa Symposium involved discussions about Health concerns, Human rights, Economical development as well as many other legal issues. ILS members donated school supplies in March 2007 to benefit Iraqi children. ILS members have also been involved in community service, teaching English to immigrants through Catholic Charities in Baltimore, and holding an immigration workshop in the summer of 2007 at the University of Baltimore School of Law.
