Sixth International Wildlife Law Conference
The Sixth International Wildlife Law Conference will take place on March 31, 2001 at the Washington College of Law, American University, in Washington, DC. The event is sponsored by the American Society of International Law's Wildlife Interest Group and co-sponsored by the Washington College of Law, American University, Kluwer Law International, and the Detroit College of Law at Michigan State University. As always, the conference's themes and speakers will emphasize the interface of science, management, politics, and law in international wildlife conservation initiatives.
The themes for the conference's three panels are:
- Panel 1: The Effectiveness of International Fisheries Conventions;
- Panel 2: The United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea: Selected Issues;
- Panel 3: Implementation and Compliance with Sea Turtle Conventions and Agreements
