Summary: The Department of State has renewed the Charter of the Advisory Committee on International Law. Through this Committee, the Department of State will continue to obtain the views and advice of a cross-section of the country's outstanding members of the legal profession on significant issues of international law.

Notice of each meeting will be published in the Federal Register at least 15 days prior to the meeting, unless there are extraordinary circumstances that require shorter notice.
