Sonia Rolland01.08.20 —Professor Sonia E. Rolland has been nominated to the Executive Council of the American Society of International Law (ASIL), which fosters the study of international law and promotes the establishment and maintenance of international relations on the basis of law and justice. Rolland’s research and writing focus on public international law, international economic law and development, international environmental law and energy regulation. The Executive Council is comprised of 24 members who each serve a three-year term.

“I look forward to continuing to serve the American Society and its members in this new capacity and I am reminded of the formidable work that our dearly missed colleague Professor Hope Lewis accomplished when she served on the Executive Council,” said Rolland, author of Emerging Powers in International Economic Law — Cooperation, Competition and Transformation (with David M. Trubek) (Cambridge University Press, 2019), and Development at the WTO (Oxford University Press; hardbound 2012, paperback 2013). Her articles have appeared in the Journal of International Economic Law, Harvard International Law Journal, Georgetown Immigration Law Journal, Global Community Yearbook and the European Journal of International Law, among others.

ASIL’s nearly 4,000 members from more than 100 nations include attorneys, academics, corporate counsel, judges, representatives of governments and non-governmental organizations, international civil servants, students and others interested in international law. Rolland will be formally elected to the Executive Council at ASIL’s annual meeting in April in Washington, DC. She currently is an ASIL Insights editor and previously served as co-chair of the International Economic Law Interest Group and in other leadership positions.
