The ILS creates relevant and meaningful networking and educational opportunities for ILS members throughout the year with our in-person or online CLE events, mixers and the Annual Institute.
Visit this page often for more information on upcoming CLE events.
Our flagship event, the Annual Institute, convenes international law experts from across the U.S., Texas, Mexico, Canada and the world to discuss the latest developments in international law. This event is usually held in the spring. ILS members and attendees can earn up to 10 hours of CLE credit during this 1.5 day event. Law firms or companies interested in reaching Texas lawyers can also become a sponsor or exhibitor of the Annual Institute which attracts 200-plus attendees.
The State Bar of Texas holds an annual meeting to provide its 100,000-plus members with opportunities to earn Continuing Legal Education (CLE) credits, network with other professionals, and hear from keynote speakers. The next State Bar of Texas Annual Meeting will be held June 20-21, 2024 at the Hilton Anatole in Dallas, Texas.
The ILS formed the International Human Rights Committee (IHRC) in August 2015 – the first of its kind among state bars, with the goals to study legal issues related to international human rights, and to inform and provide guidance to Texas lawyers. Throughout the year, the IHRC produces various programs to increase awareness for international human rights law.
