Professor Amato will be honored at the 30th Annual Friedmann Banquet, at the Mark Hotel in Manhattan, on Tuesday, March 30, 2004, where he will deliver the keynote address to be published in Volume 43 of the Journal.

Every year since 1975 the Journal has presented the Friedmann Award to a distinguished scholar or practitioner who has made outstanding contributions to the field of international law. Past recipients of the award include Professor Harold Hungju Koh (2003); Dr. Hans Blix (2002); James A. Baker III (1996); Boutros Boutros-Ghali (1995); and Philip C. Jessup (1975).

The Journal is the oldest student-run journal of international law. It was founded in 1961 by the late Wolfgang Friedmann, a professor of international law at Columbia Law School, and has since enjoyed premier status in the international legal community.
