The 76th ILA Biennial Conference took place from 7-11 April 2014 in Washington, D.C.

The conference coincided with and was intertwined with the ASIL 108th annual meeting. The theme was ‘The Effectiveness of International Law’. Some 470 ILA-members attended (as well as more than 1000 ASIL-members).

The ILA’s core work (committees on various topics, studying and reporting, and sometimes finalising their work with resolutions) took place in an inspiring and friendly atmosphere.

A number of committees and study groups held open working sessions, all of which were well attended. Reports of these sessions will be included in the final report of the conference, alongside the substantive reports of these committees and study groups.
