ILS Bimini Retreat - Registration Open!
Registration for the ILS Retreat in Bimini is now OPEN! Please join the International Law Section on April 29 - May 1, 2022, as we finally go "International." Please book your own travel to arrive at the ILS Retreat in Bimini by fast ferry from Ft. Lauderdale, seaplane from Miami, or a “regular” plane with wheels for landing gear. Weather permitting, you might also want to hitch a ride with one of our members on their private vessels or aircraft. 

Besides the professional comradery we are all accustomed to at ILS retreats, we will have the opportunity to meet with and hear from some of our colleagues from the Bahamas over breakfast on Saturday with the World-Famous Bimini Bread. We will also leave time to enjoy some fishing, diving, and lounging at the infinity pool above the crystal blue waters of the Gulfstream. Afterwards, maybe you want to enjoy a game of ring toss at the End of the World Sand Bar, a favorite watering hole of Ernest Hemingway, Adam Clayton Powell and Jimmy Buffett at the end of the road in Alice Town. Enjoy this special event for the Section and all the splendor that comes with a weekend among friends on the Islands in the Stream. To register, please follow this link. For hotel registration, please follow this link.
