The Annual Meeting of the American Society of International Law is always an important gathering in the international legal community. It is a chance for everyone interested in international law to come together to deepen our understanding of the developments in the field. Ultimately, the aim of the discussion is to advance the international rule of law in the world.

To focus discussion at the 2002 Annual Meeting, we chose two intersecting developments that merited considered reflection: the legalization of international relations and the internationalization of legal relations. Representing two sides of the same coin, these twin themes, it was thought, succinctly captured current discussions about the growing role of rules in the conduct of international affairs and the impact of globalization on legal relations.
