American Society of International Law
The mission of the American Society of International Law (ASIL) is to foster the study of international law and to promote the establishment and maintenance of international relations on the basis of law and justice.
ASIL is a nonprofit, nonpartisan, educational membership organization founded in 1906 and chartered by Congress in 1950. ASIL holds Special Consultative Status to the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations and is a constituent society of the American Council of Learned Societies. The Society is headquartered at Tillar House in Washington, DC, and is governed by an Executive Council.
The state of Michigan is one of only 18 states that shares a border with another nation. With that being said, the University of Detroit Mercy School of Law offers a unique experience by providing students the opportunity to pursue dual Juris Doctorate degrees in both the United States and Canada. Our locale not only attracts a range of diverse communities, but also provides students chances to launch their careers at international scales.
We aim to bring a chapter of The American Society of International Law to the University of Detroit Mercy School of Law in response to the expansive platform we have and stimulate further opportunities to aid in the international relations on the basis of law and justice.
