The American Society of International Law (ASIL) is a professional association of international lawyers in the United States. The organization was founded in 1906. After the Lake Mohonk Conference on International Arbitration, some participants felt the need for a society devoted to international law separate from international arbitration. Participants in a meeting held on December 9, 1905, at the residence of Oscar S. Straus agreed to establish the ASIL.Elihu Root was the first president of the ASIL.The organization was chartered by the United States Congress in 1950 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 holds Category II Consultative Status to the United Nations Economic and Social Council (UNESCO), and is a constituent society of the American Council of Learned Societies. ASIL is headquartered in Washington, D.C. Among the Society's publications are The American Journal of International Law (published four times a year), International Legal Materials (published every other month since 1962), Benchbook on International Law, and Proceedings of the ASIL Annual Meeting.
