On April 8, AUWCL and the American Society of International Law (ASIL) presented the 17th Annual Grotius Lecture to a crowd of more than 600 to open the 109th ASIL Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C. This year's distinguished lecturer was Sir Kenneth Keith, former judge of the International Court of Justice. H.E. Dame Rosalyn Higgins, past president of the International Court of Justice, served as the distinguished discussant, and Dean Claudio Grossman moderated the panel.

The Grotius Lecture was established to provide a forum for respected diplomats, scholars, and international lawyers, who may not normally attend the ASIL Annual Meeting, to present their ideas to the ASIL members and the international legal community.
