Activities and Programs
At the heart of the ILI training program are the seminars for participants from the public and private sectors. The Washington-based courses cover a breadth of topics relating to national and international business, investment, and governance. These topics include procurement, privatization, arbitration and mediation, negotiating and implementing trade agreements, WTO: rights and obligations, project management, legislative drafting, judicial administration, corporate governance, bank restructuring, and borrowing & debt management. Of special interest to foreign lawyers, law students preparing for graduate legal study in the U.S, and others whose jobs require an understanding of the U.S. legal system are three courses offered every summer - Introduction to Legal English, Workshop on Legal Research and Writing, and Orientation to the U.S. Legal System. Additionally, ILI offers tailored courses abroad, in additional to its standard offerings customized for particular national audiences.
ILI serves as an advisor to governments and multilateral organizations in many areas, including among others, specific negotiations, problems, and special assignments, such as drafting of agreements, focused studies, revision of regulations, contract standardization, legislative drafting, procurement, and project management. ILI draws on its very large network of alumni, faculty, and advisors to dispatch teams well-suited to the particular challenge at hand, and is pleased to be able to offer tailor-made solutions in response to informal inquiries as well as solicitations of bids for consulting work. Among the literally hundreds of projects on which ILI has worked are Central Banking Reform (China), Judicial Reform (Commonwealth of Independent States), Transportation Infrastructure to Support Trade (Ukraine), Administrative Law Reform (Ukraine), WTO Judicial Training (China), Legal Education (Russia), Procurement Reform (Honduras).

For over twenty years, the ILI has been publishing books on international and transnational commercial law, trade, litigation, commercial dispute resolution, and foreign legal systems. Recent and ongoing ILI publications include the Digest of United States Practice in International Law, by Sally Cummins and David Stewart, which ILI is proud to publish, in conjunction with the Office of the Legal Adviser of the U.S. Department of State; Introduction to Legal English, by Mark Wojcik, a widely acclaimed, groundbreaking book, now in its second edition, introducing legal English to law students and lawyers whose first language is not English; and International Judicial Assistance, by Bruno A. Ristau and Michael Abbell, a seven-volume work recognized as the authoritative work and practice guide for attorneys engaged in transnational litigation. Forthcoming are Primers of Law, Policy and Practice.
