The American Society of International Law is featuring just one Goldstone panel during a conference filled with discussion of "International Law in a Time of Change," a clear reference to the Goldstone effect. Goldstone’s sure to come up, even in State Department official Anne Marie Slaughter’s appearance at the lead lecture, on changing standards. Here’s the key panel, in the morning, so folks sleep through it…
