IISL General Assembly

1:30pm to 2:30pm - Room "Dulzin Big A"
International Conference Centre, Jerusalem

The IISL General Assembly, open to all IISL Members, will be held between technical sessions of the IISL Colloquium during the 2015 IAC, on Wednesday, October 14 in room "Dulzin Big A" from 1:30pm until 2:30pm.

As you know, the board proposes to amend the IISL Bylaws in order to clarify the transition from Prospective members to Individual membership. Our statutes provide that at least 10% of the members in good standing must express their vote. If you cannot attend the meeting, please make sure to give a power of representation to a fellow member so that we reach this number. You can do this until Oct. 8, by sending an email to identifying the person voting on your behalf other than the Executive Secretary. A member may act as representative of no more than two other members. We appreciate your cooperation!

Manfred Lachs African Round - Fundraising Results

Thanks to extraordinary generosity of IISL members, we have collected sufficient funds to provide the financial assistance necessary to bring the African students to Jerusalem to represent the African region in the Moot Court World Finals.

The Moot Court Committee, and especially the African Region, is grateful for this considerate gesture. Please accept our heartfelt thanks.
