WFLS has started this occasional series of conversations with various members of the Board of Governors of the Society. In this time of challenge and social distancing, we still want to connect and learn with you, our members, and other professionals as well as students interested in international and comparative law. Come, listen and learn about what work and life are like for different professionals and how their careers evolved.

For the first part of this two-piece episode, Mark Agrast, Executive Director and Executive Vice President of the American Society of International Law will share his experience. On September 1, 2020, Mark Agrast will interview Dean Rosa Celorio. Rosa Celorio currently works as Associate Dean for International and Comparative Legal Studies and Burnett Family Professorial Lecturer in International and Comparative Law and Policy at the George Washington University Law School in Washington, DC.
