“With members representing more than 90 countries, this is truly an international organization; one that I am proud to help guide over the coming year,” says Hendrix. “We serve as a portal for U.S. lawyers to collaborate with legal professionals from around the world and vice versa. We strive to globally expand the rule of law, and help our members develop skills that will make them more successful in navigating international law.”
