Jason Poblete has been appointed Vice-Chair of the American Bar Association's (ABA) International Law National Security Committee for a one year term starting August 2011.
The ABA Section of International Law, which has more than 20,000 members in 90 countries, is the leader in the development of policy in the international arena, the promotion of the rule of law, and the education of international law practitioners. The Section has numerous task forces and more than 60 regional and special interest committees within 12 divisions — Africa/Eurasia, Americas/Middle East, Business Regulation, Constituent, Corporate, Disputes, Finance, Industries, Legal Practice, Public International Law, International Treaties, and Tax, Estates & Individuals — to closely monitor and disseminate information on domestic and international policy developments with implications for law practice.
The National Security Committee is concerned with current legal and policy developments nationally and internationally that affect all security interests of the United States, with a particular focus on the rule of law, nonproliferation and disarmament of weapons of mass destruction, threats by nonstate actors, intelligence, military doctrine, and international institutions such as the United Nations and NATO. The Committee hosts programs with Members of Congress, current and former administration officials, members of governmental and international agencies, and other experts at regular ABA meetings and other venues, including the United Nations and Capitol Hill.
