November 9, 2021

Foley Hoag LLP attorney Arsalan Suleman will participate in a virtual forum hosted by the American Society of International Law (ASIL) for its 2021 Midyear Meeting event. The forum will take place virtually on Friday, November 12, 2021 from 11:45 to 12:45.

Suleman will participate in a session entitled “Ask-Me-Anything,” during which attendees will be able to pose their own questions. He is expected to discuss his representation of The Gambia in its case at the International Court of Justice against Myanmar for the Rohingya genocide, as well as his own career path, which included almost seven years of service in the U.S. Department of State.

Suleman is a counsel in Foley Hoag’s International Litigation & Arbitration Practice, where he focuses on representing sovereign States in international disputes. He primarily advises sovereign States and State-owned companies in Africa, the Middle East, and Central, South and Southeast Asia. He is the U.S. Department of State's former Acting Special Envoy to the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), the world's second largest international organization after the United Nations, and the former Counselor for Multilateral Affairs in the Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights, and Labor.

The mission of ASIL is to foster the study of international law and to promote the establishment and maintenance of international relations on the basis of law and justice.
