Members of Chambers warmly congratulate Can Yeginsu on his election today to the Executive Council of the American Society of International Law (ASIL).
ASIL was founded in 1906 to foster the study of international law and to promote the establishment and maintenance of international relations on the basis of law and justice.
Today ASIL has over 4,000 members drawn from over 100 countries around the world. The Executive Council leads the Society and advises its President and Vice Presidents.
Can Yeginsu is recognised as one of the London Bar’s leading barristers practising in public international law. He advises across a wide gamut of international law issues and acts for foreign governments, multinational companies, banks, individuals (including foreign investors), and international organisations before a number of international tribunals and courts.
Can also teaches international law at Columbia Law School in New York and Georgetown University Law Centre in Washington D.C. In 2022, Can was appointed by the Lord Neuberger of Abbotsbury to succeed Amal Clooney as Deputy Chair of The High Level Panel of Legal Experts on Media Freedom, the independent advisory arm of the Media Freedom Coalition of States, chaired by the Kingdom of the Netherlands and Canada.
