The American Society of International Law,
founded in 1906 and incorporated by Act of Congress in 1950, is a 501(c)(3) organization under the U.S. Internal Revenue Code and has been granted Consultative Status (Category II) to the United Nations. It is the premier membership organization in the United States dedicated to advancing the study and use of international law. For nearly a century the Society has helped set milestones in the evolution of international law through its participation in the international policy process. It is both a non-partisan forum for debate and discussion and an educational institution fostering innovative thinking on issues of law, international relations, and public policy. With new initiatives ranging from judicial outreach programs to expanding Internet resources on international law, the ASIL is entering its second century focused on bringing the American public and policy-makers the information, analysis, and resources they need to act on international law's increasing role in public affairs.
