Welcome to the Lansing Chapter of the International Law Society!

~Members' thoughts on international law~

In today's global environment, international law is a combination of rules, norms, agreements, and standards which seek to maintain stability in the world.  ~ Lucy Viramontes

International law changes the world and being changed by the world. ~ Yingzhe Yang

International law is a body of laws that is accepted and governs nations interactions between one another. ~ member

I think international law is what it is; a body of laws or legal principles that are based on custom, treaties, or legislation and that control or affect the rights and duties of nations in relation to each other (Merriam-Webster's Dictionary of Law).  ~  Elizabeth Cousin

International law provides a platform for entities to look beyond their individual boundaries. ~ Sophia Cheng
