Alison Plenge '09 Appointed as ASIL Fellow

The American Society of International Law (ASIL) has appointed Alison Plenge '09 an International Law Fellow.  Established in 1906, ASIL is a nonprofit, nonpartisan, educational membership institution that fosters the study and understanding of international law and promotes international relations on the basis of law and justice through various scholarship and educational programs.   Through the California International Law Center at King Hall (CILC), the UC Davis School of Law is an ASIL Academic Partner.

As an ASIL International Law Fellow, Plenge will work in ASIL's Washington, D.C., headquarters on its judicial educational outreach program.  This program seeks to provide judges with an understanding of the interaction between international and national law through seminars, workshops, and published resources.  Plenge will support the development of educational curricula and teaching materials, including assisting Professor Diane Marie Amann, ASIL Vice President Professor of Law and CILC Director, with a new benchbook on international law for U.S. judges.  She will also work on strengthening ASIL ties to the mainstream judicial education sector.

Plenge earned her B.A. from Wesleyan University in 2003 and her J.D. from the UC Davis School of Law in 2009.  She has previously worked as a judicial extern for Justice Richard Sims of the California Court of Appeal, Third Appellate District, and as a legal intern in the worldwide legal operations department at Cisco Systems, Inc.
