                CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY AND THE ROLE OF
                IN-HOUSE COUNSEL AND EXTERNAL COUNSEL (ROL)
                The program covers the still imprecise notion of CSR and its relationship to
                corporate governance, law and ethics, whether it should be voluntary or
                mandatory, and whether it is just a marketing tool. The panel will discuss
                CSR objectives (labor rights, environmental protection, and human rights), the
                responsibility of business (stockholders or stakeholders, the soul of the corpora-
                tion, social investment and social leadership) and national and international
                initiatives (such as the ILO Tripartite Declaration, Global Sullivan Principles,
                Caux Round Table, Amnesty International Guidelines, Social Accountability 8000,
                OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises, UN Global Compact, ICC steps to
                reasonable business conduct, and UN Norms on responsibility of transnational
                corporations). Roles of in-house and external lawyers will also be covered,
                concluding with recommendations.

AROUND THE WORLD WITH THE ABA’S RULE OF
LAW ACTIVITIES (ROL)
The Berlin Wall fell, and the ABA was there, working to support the legal reform
process in Central and Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union. Today, the
ABA’s rule of law programming spans the globe, with programs in over thirty
countries in Asia, Africa, Latin America, Central Europe, Eurasia, and the Middle
East. At this kick-off session, leaders of the ABA’s rule of law councils and
programs will describe their activities, including those in hot spots like Iraq and
Sudan, discuss challenges in the emerging rule of law international development
field, distinguish the ABA from other rule of law providers, and identify ways for
ABA members to become involved with this work.

PRIVATE SECTOR PERSPECTIVE ON ADVANCING THE RULE

“Trade Not Aid” is a familiar rallying cry among many developing countries
and non-governmental organizations. But trade and investment are non-starters
where legal frameworks are either not in place or not enforced. Global trade

                                  integration will be problematic if countries retreat from principles of democracy,
                                  human rights and the rule of law. Concerns range from independence of the

                                  AFTER YOUR MAIN LEGAL CAREER
                                  In today’s more mobile, frequently changing and less stable job world of law
                                  firm and corporate mergers, down-sizing and “right-sizing,” as well as early-
                                  retirement and “buy-out” programs for government attorneys, many mid-career
                                  lawyers in their late forties as well as the boomer vanguard in their fifties
                                  approaching retirement find themselves asking “what’s next?” – whether by
                                  choice or by chance. What options do more senior, experienced international
                                  lawyers have? Rather than focusing on “how to find a mid- or late- career job,”
                                  this panel will explore various options available to lawyers at this stage of their
                                  careers, and how to plan for the transition from the legal job they may have
                                  held for many years to the next legal undertaking.

                                  OF U.S. FOREIGN ASSISTANCE (ROL)
                                  The President’s National Security Strategy cites three pillars for national security
                                  – diplomacy, defense and development. In this context, development is not only
                                  critical to world economic growth, but U.S. strategic interests. George W. Bush
                                  has nearly doubled foreign assistance over the past four years, with substantial
                                  sums destined for Iraq and Afghanistan. Main areas for investment globally have
                                  been economic development, the environment, health, education, disaster assis-
                                  tance and democracy. However, foreign assistance has always had its detractors
                                  and has been little understood by the public. This panel will discuss the current
                                  status, trends and future of U.S. foreign assistance, how U.S. foreign policy and
                                  national security intersect with development assistance.

                                  The prevention of a weapon of mass destruction from entering the United States
                                  hidden in international cargo arriving in or destined for the United States is the
                                  primary mission of the new Bureau of Customs and Border Protection. The
                                  statutory basis for the far-reaching changes in CBP security policies have yet to
                                  be fully explored. In this program, we will look at the legal foundations for the
                                  interdiction of weapons of mass destruction. This program will focus on the
                                  legal bases, both for U.S. law and international treaties, Customs has used in
                                  implementing changes in examining such cargo, as well as persons, and how
                                  successful Customs has been in fulfilling its mission.

                                NUCLEAR WEAPONS, OUR SECURITY AND THE LAW (ROL) (PL)
                                There are still over 30,000 nuclear weapons, most many times more
                                destructive than Hiroshima. Thousands of Russian and American weapons
                                remain on hair-trigger alert. This May, the UN will review the nonproliferation
                                legal regime, centered on the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty (NPT). Severe
                                challenges face this regime and the integrity of fulfillment of NPT commitments,
                                with significant implications for international confidence in multilateralism and
                                the rule of law. Among these issues are:
                                1. The breakout of North Korea,
                                2. Threats to the control of nuclear materials and peaceful uses of
                                    nuclear technology,
                                3. The dangers posed by non-State actors, and
                                4. The status of the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty.
                                These challenges highlight the significance of the NPT’s obligations for negoti-
                                ated nuclear disarmament – an obligation that the ICJ unanimously agreed is a
                                binding legal commitment. An extraordinary panel of experts with diplomatic,
                                security, legal, legislative, intelligence and military experience will address these
                                critical issues.

EMPLOYEE MOBILITY FOR MULTINATIONAL COMPANIES—
EMPLOYMENT, BENEFITS, IMMIGRATION AND TAX ISSUES FOR
EXECUTIVE EXPATRIATES (BL/I) (C)
This program will feature a panel of experts from the employment, benefits,
immigration and tax fields. The speakers will analyze hypotheticals addressing
global mobility issues faced by multinational companies moving personnel
around the globe. The program will have a specific focus on the international
legal issues that face high net-worth, well-placed business executives crossing
international borders and the complex income tax, estate tax and international
wealth transfer planning issues that the executive might encounter. A change
                                                                                    A G E N D A — T H U R S D A Y




of employment or place of employment can create significant repercussions
for executives and this panel will explore how such a move can impact the
employee’s fiscal and legal status and what pre-move planning might be
appropriate. A key focus will be upon the types of compensation and benefits
that the executive might receive, including wages, deferred compensation,
pensions, stock options, and fringe benefits and the role that a tax equalization
agreement might play.

SHOWCASE PROGRAM

ECONOMIC SANCTIONS IN THE 21ST CENTURY (BL/I) (C) (T)
The United States has imposed economic sanctions to further national security
and foreign policy goals for over 200 years. In light of recent sanctions events,
including problems with the UN Oil-for-Food program in connection with multi-
lateral sanctions on Iraq, the lifting of UN and U.S. sanctions against Libya, new
sanctions imposed on Syria, the expanding circle of sanctions in the war on
terrorism, and tightening sanctions on Cuba, this program will take a fresh look
at U.S. and multilateral sanctions policy. The panel of speakers will address
whether and under what conditions economic sanctions work and what makes
them fail; is the concept of “targeted sanctions” viable; are all the costs of
sanctions being adequately examined in the policy process; has the sanctions
aspects of the war on terrorism informed our judgment on what are “effective”
sanctions; and what will be the shape of future sanctions programs.

                                ARBITRATION IN ASIA: A COMPARATIVE REVIEW (A) (DR)
                                This program will present an analysis of the amenability and readiness of coun-
                                tries in Asia to permit, participate in arbitrations and enforce arbitration awards.
                                The program will look at how arbitration works in each country, how often it is
                                used, how efficient it is, restrictions (if any) on participation by foreign lawyers
                                and the difficulty or ease of enforcing arbitration awards in each country. It will
                                offer a practical examination by regional experts of arbitration law and practice
                                in Asian venues such as China, Hong Kong, Japan, Singapore and Thailand.
                                Panel remarks are expected to address important institutions such as CIETAC
                                and SIAC, treaty adherence, the role of the rule of law in arbitral jurisprudence,
                                foreign practice restrictions, effective arbitration clause drafting, and award
                                enforcement.

                                Americas in November 2005. The leaders’ agenda includes significant commit-
                                ments related to promoting democracy, making democratic institutions work
                                better, combating corruption, increasing transparency, and strengthening the rule
                                of law. The Summit process, which includes inter-Summit ministerial and tech-
                                nical meetings and draws on the expertise in a wide range of international
                                organizations, plays a key role in establishing a common set of commitments
                                related to good democratic governance, provides a mechanism to hold govern-
                                ments accountable, and increases dialogue among governments, the private
                                sector and civil society organizations.

                                This program will explore the nature and consequences of the ICJ’s July 2004
                                advisory opinion that held that the construction of the wall being built by Israel
                                in the Occupied Palestinian Territory, including in and around East Jerusalem,
                                and its associated regime, are contrary to international law. The panel will
                                address the Wall opinion, the utility and legitimacy of the Court’s involvement
                                in the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, the legal and prudential scope of the Court’s
                                advisory jurisdiction, and what these inform us of the Court’s role in interna-
                                tional dispute resolution in the 21st century.

                                international trade is becoming a paramount concern. At the same time, many
                                national jurisdictions continue to have weak laws or enforcement policies,
                                creating a significant risk of infringement and theft of valuable IP. For example,
                                intellectual property right protection is among the top issues for any company

                                This program will examine the various ways companies can protect their intel-
                                lectual property in cross-border trade and investment, and prevent infringing
                                products or activities from adversely affecting profitability. The panel of experts

                                legal assistance to emerging democracies throughout the world. Programs such
                                as CEELI, ABA-Africa, ABA-Asia, UNDP/ILRC, LALIC, and the CEELI Institute
                                have provided hundreds of Section members and other ABA volunteers with
                                exciting opportunities to work on fundamental rule of law issues in transitional
                                societies. State bars and affiliated organizations likewise have developed strong
                                programs focusing on these issues. Alumni from such projects have developed
                                tremendous skills in delivering assistance in these environments, making the
                                ABA and its members leaders in the international effort to promote the rule of
                                law. To capture, organize and increase this expertise, the Section plans to
                                organize and sponsor an ongoing dialogue among those interested in technical
                                legal assistance programs. Among the goals of this group will be to discuss
                                lessons learned, identify best practices, develop training models to prepare
                                volunteers for future assignments, and create linkages between assistance

                                providers from around the world. This session will be an open forum on the

                                plan for the Section’s programs in these areas.

                                This is an extended, two-hour, two-panel program undertaken in conjunction
                                with the earlier Roundtable on Private International Law. The main component
                                of this session will be a panel addressing issues of importance in proceedings
                                under the New York Arbitration Convention. After an introduction to the content
                                and operation of the Convention’s recognition and enforcement provisions,
                                discussion will examine the status of annulled awards (and their potential
                                enforcement), Article III “escape hatches” (e.g., personal jurisdiction and forum
                                non conveniens), unique problems raised by sovereign parties, and the treatment
                                of awards issued in investor-state arbitrations. The program will conclude with a
                                joint annual review of important developments in international litigation, arbitra-
                                tion and mediation, featuring speakers from the International Litigation and

BREAKFAST AT THE BAR: TRADE AND DEVELOPMENT
IN AFGHANISTAN (T) (ROL)
In the wake of the ouster of the Taliban, successful Presidential elections,
the end of a 4-year drought and over $2 billion in international assistance,
Afghanistan’s economic outlook has improved significantly. What continuing
economic reforms are in Afghanistan’s future, and what are the prospects
for trade in the near future? Will increased political stability and continued
international commitment to Afghan reconstruction create an optimistic
outlook for improvements to the Afghan economy? Discuss these issues and
                                                                                    A G E N D A — F R I D A Y

                            ITEMS AND HUMAN REMAINS (PL)
                            The Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA) created
                            a statutory scheme for addressing repatriation of Native American remains and
                            certain objects held by museums within the United States. But what about other,
                            non-Native American Indigenous objects of cultural patrimony? And, around the
                            world, museums care for tens of thousands of sets of human remains, some
                            identifiable and some not, some found within the borders of the institution’s
                            country, and some originally from beyond their borders. There are no interna-
                            tional laws addressing these areas, and only a few countries have laws similar
                            to NAGPRA.
                            This program will examine current attitudes towards repatriation and trends
                            under NAGPRA, as well as how museums, research institutions and countries,
                            in the absence of legislative guidance, have dealt with international or non-
                            NAGPRA repatriation requests. The panelists will also discuss existing and
                            proposed legislative responses, and examine the future of NAGPRA as well as
                            international and non-NAGPRA repatriation requests.

organizations world-wide are now being called upon to examine their practices
as well, and to implement compliance programs of their own. Does this make
sense? How are these programs structured? Will this become the practice of the
future? If so, how can non-profits benefit from corporate “best practices?”

   Avoiding inappropriate payments in challenging markets;
   Ensuring that your organization does not become a tool for

TRANSPORTATION OF GOODS IN INTERNATIONAL COMMERCE:
AN INTRODUCTION TO CARRIAGE OF CARGO FOR THE
TRADE LAWYER (T)
Understanding the various legal regimes governing the transportation of goods
in international commerce is indispensable to all practitioners of international
trade law. Anyone who drafts sales contracts under the U.C.C. or the United
Nations Convention on International Sale of Goods (C.I.S.G) requires at least
                                                                                      A G E N D A — F R I D A Y




basic knowledge of contracts of carriage, as the costs and potential liabilities of
contracts of carriage can have a profound impact on the ability of their clients -
both buyers and sellers - to reach agreement. This program is designed to
provide trade-law specialists both with a brief overview of the law relating to
carriage of goods by sea, air, road, rail and multimodal means, and to discuss
why the international community to date has not been able to develop a
comprehensive regime of treaty-law governing transportation of goods.

RUSSIA’S YUKOS AFFAIR: THE USE AND ABUSE OF LAW
(ROL) (BL/I)
Russia’s infamous "Yukos Affair," the all-out attack by the entire panoply of
Russian governmental agencies and entities against Russia’s richest man, Mikhail
Khodorkovsky, has been in the news for more than 18 months. The moves
against Khodorkovsky, former CEO of Yukos, erstwhile "oligarch" and principal
owner of Yukos Oil Co., began after he was perceived to have failed to honor
the July 2000 understanding Russia’s oligarchs had reached with President Putin
to stay out of politics. Pretrial detention of the accused, countless abuses of the
attorney-client relationship, denial of medical assistance and government
sponsored "discovery" by masked gunmen preceded a direct assault on Yukos
Oil Co., the source of Khodorkovsky’s wealth. Tax assessments totaling nearly
$30 billion were lodged against Yukos while its ability to pay these assessments
was precluded when its bank accounts were frozen and asset sales forbidden.
While Putin maintains that the Yukos and Khodorkovsky proceedings are strictly
law enforcement matters for the Russian courts, the political nature of the Yukos
Affair is vividly apparent to the rest of the world, including several courageous
Ministers and advisors in the Russian government. The farcical December 2004
auction of Yukos’s principal operating subsidiary made permanent the destruc-
tion of Yukos’s more than $30 billion in market value held by more than 60,000
innocent shareholders. Panel members will offer their differing views of the
Yukos Affair and its implications for the Rule of Law in Russia.

                            OF INFRASTRUCTURE IN LATIN AMERICA IN THE 21ST CENTURY
                            (BL/I) (ROL)
                            The decade of the ’90s saw attempts to privatize public services, such as trans-
                            port, electric generation and distribution, water and wastewater treatment and
                            hospitals, with some limited success stories and many failures, in Latin America.
                            Attempts to revisit and restructure the pure privatization model so that it is more
                            likely to succeed in the conditions prevailing in Latin America have resulted in
                            various public-private partnership approaches. This panel will explore alternative
                            modes of building, ownership and financing of public infrastructure in several
                            countries in Latin America with a view towards trend-spotting.

CHINA + 1: M&A RELATED DUE DILIGENCE IN CHINA, THAILAND
AND VIETNAM (BL/I) (A)
Many investors in Asia are now adopting a “China + 1” strategy where an invest-
ment is made in China and one other Asian country for purposes of diversifying
risk. Two of the more popular “plus one” jurisdictions are Thailand and Vietnam.
This program will explore and compare the issues that can arise during M&A
related due diligence in China, Thailand or Vietnam.

TRADE AND PUBLIC HEALTH: BALANCING TRADE LAW AND
HEALTH LAW CONSIDERATIONS IN RESPONDING TO PUBLIC
HEALTH CRISES IN DEVELOPING COUNTRIES (PL) (T) (ROL)
The Doha Declaration on TRIPS and Public Health represents an important
compromise for developing countries trying to meet their public health needs
while complying with trade regulations. The TRIPS agreement recognizes that,
under certain circumstances, exceptions to intellectual property rights are
permitted to safeguard public health. Challenges lie in the interpretation of Art.
30 of TRIPS, which provides for an exception to patent rights, and amendments
to Art. 31(f) of TRIPS, which permits an exception for pharmaceutical production
for primarily domestic purposes. Under what circumstances are such exceptions
to the Agreement justified? Specifically, can these exceptions be used effectively
to respond to public health crises in the most affected areas such as Sub-Saharan
Africa in response to the HIV/AIDS crisis?
                                                                                     A G E N D A — F R I D A Y




The program will:
   Educate participants on the public health exceptions under TRIPS, the Doha
   Declaration and the August 2003 decision of the General Council, and the
   potential use of these exceptions as a tool of health policy;
   Examine the intersection between international trade law, public health and
   human rights; and
   Advance public policy goals of using trade law as a development tool.

                            The program will consider the following issues:
                                 What are the circumstances that would give rise to such exceptions?
                                 How have the WTO, General Council and others interpreted
                                 these exceptions?
                                 What is the position of USTR, the business community, NGO’s to
                                 these exceptions?
                                 How have the developing countries most affected by significant public health
                                 crises sought to implement this Agreement? What is the capacity of these
                                 countries to implement this Agreement?

INTERNATIONAL BRANDING THROUGH MASTER
FRANCHISING (BL/I)
Master franchising is the preferred vehicle for exporting U.S. franchise brands to
foreign countries — it is an arrangement under which the U.S. franchiser grants
a resident of a foreign country the right to replicate the franchise brand in the
master franchisee’s country. Master franchising arrangements vary considerably
based on industry practices, the economy, customs and culture of the master
franchisee’s country, the laws that govern franchising in the master franchisee’s
country, and the types and degree of support to be provided.
This program will explore the basics of forming an international master franchise
relationship, using a fictitious lodging industry franchise as the model. The pres-
entation will include best practices observations from four perspectives – those
of a U.S. franchiser’s outside franchise counsel; the franchiser’s in-house fran-
chise counsel; foreign counsel to the franchiser; and counsel to a foreign master
franchise prospect.

                            REFORMING THE UN HUMAN RIGHTS COMMISSION (ROL) (PL)
                            The UN Human Rights Commission is failing to carry out its vital mission of
                            setting international human rights standards and exposing violations. After a
                            sorry record in recent years of failing to condemn genocide in Sudan and
                            electing Libya as Chair, the need for reform has become urgent. The Section’s
                            Task Force on Reform of the UN Human Rights Commission, which includes
                            members with wide experience in dealing with the Commission, has completed
                            its report which offers numerous recommendations for improving the perform-
                            ance of the Commission. The recommendations include a restored focus on
                            legally-enforceable human rights, a Code of Conduct pledging members of the
                            Commission to honor their obligations under human rights treaties to which they
                            are party and to cooperate in investigations of the Commission, the imposition
                            of appropriate sanctions, including disqualification from future membership, for
                            violations of the Code, enhancing the professionalism of the Commission’s
                            investigative processes, and promoting the rule of law.

RESPONDING TO ANTIDUMPING INVESTIGATIONS
INITIATED BY THE CHINESE INVESTIGATORY
AUTHORITIES (A) (T)
The program is designed to give the audience an introduction to Chinese
antidumping proceedings and practice. The program will be introduced by the
Chinese official in charge of antidumping investigations. This official will address
the requirements for the initiation of an antidumping investigation, procedures
for responding in such investigations, and the actions that may be taken by the
Chinese regulatory authorities. Lawyers who are experienced in representing
respondents will then speak on how to effectively participate in an investigation
and share their insights on how to seek a favorable determination. The program
will also give first hand information on developments in the area of Chinese
antidumping law and policy.

                                                                                       A G E N D A — F R I D A Y




(Part 1) (BL/I) (DR)
This program will comprise three sessions in which attendees will learn how to
navigate the complex issues involved in international bankruptcies and hear
about developments.

Session One: Rumblings and Vibrations — How Good Are The
Numbers? (2:45-3:30)
The program opens with a practical session on recognizing the early warning
signs of a company in financial trouble. This session will examine what goes into
the creation of a company’s financial numbers, and the reliance on these financial
numbers by management, investors, creditors, suppliers and stakeholders.

                            This session will examine recent developments with regards to significant inter-
                            national bankruptcy litigation, including potential pitfalls associated with dealing
                            with a multijurisdictional debtor.

                            Session Three: “When the Smoke Clears — Finding a Foothold”
                            (4:30-6:00)
                            This session will examine the myriad jurisdictional issues arising during an inter-
                            national bankruptcy. This will include choice of law arguments, cooperation
                            between jurisdictions and a discussion of developments under UNCITRAL Model
                            Law and European Regulation.

THE MULTINATIONAL CORPORATION AND DEVELOPING COUN-
TRIES: DISCRIMINATION, LITIGATION, AND COMPLIANCE AND
VOLUNTARY CODES OF CONDUCT (BL/I) (C) (T)
Labor and employment compliance for the multinational corporation historically
has been local in nature. Increasingly, however, multinational corporations find
their employment practices subject to what may be called global law. For
example, U.S. anti-discrimination laws are slowly, but surely, being exported to
the European Union, which has issued directives prohibiting employment
discrimination based on numerous protected factors. U.S. law and the experi-
ence of U.S. companies and courts are a model for many of these new
overseas obligations.
Multinational corporations thus face difficult decisions as to what should be the
applicable standards for their activities, especially regarding labor practices and
the environment. Local laws often are lacking, or are inadequate, marked by
poor enforcement. Faced with the extra-territorial effect of U.S. employment law
prohibiting discrimination, as well as the equally disconcerting risk of adverse
publicity caused by accusations of unfair employment practices, some multina-
tional corporations develop international labor compliance programs. To fill gaps
in enforceable standards, many multinationals are adopting codes of conduct
developed by international institutions ranging from the United Nations to
various non-governmental organizations (NGO’s).
This program will discuss some of the most important topics facing the multina-
tional corporation today: the extra-territorial effect of U.S. employment laws, the
                                                                                      A G E N D A — F R I D A Y




companies’ response to those laws, company compliance programs and volun-
tary codes of conduct affecting the multinational corporation. This program will
explore common grounds of compliance and enforcement, as well as best prac-
tices for multinational corporations.

                            dumping calculations; recent Canada trade remedy practice particularly with
                            respect to China; and the current status of U.S. regional free trade negotiations.

2005 SPRING MEETING                                                             49
                            INTERNATIONAL TRADE IN THE TIME OF SARBANES-OXLEY
                            (BL/I) (C) (T)
                            Companies engaged in international trade are generally aware of the legal
                            requirements for compliance with the import, export and trade regulations.
                            Agencies as diverse as Customs & Border Protection, the Bureau of Industry and
                            Security, the Food and Drug Administration, and the Treasury’s Office of Foreign
                            Assets Control all impose compliance responsibilities on companies. What many
                            companies may have missed is that failure to properly comply with any of these
                            requirements may represent an event that should be reported to the corporate
                            audit committee or outside auditors. Under Sarbanes-Oxley, international trade
                            compliance has taken on a new dimension relating to corporate governance,
                            and, ultimately, to the very value of the company’s stock. This program will help
                            those responsible for trade compliance make the link between those activities
