Engaging with International Law

3-4 October 2019

Barbican Centre, London

The London Conference on International Law will bring together international law academics, judges, practitioners, representatives of civil society, business-leaders, and other stakeholders to see how States and all other actors engage with international law.

What is the use of international law and how do we engage with it? Over the last few years, the focus appears to have been on disengagement. Yet, at the same time, international courts and tribunals are busier than ever before, while domestic courts have an increasing engagement with international legal issues. Likewise, international law features to a greater extent than ever before in the conduct of public life and debate.

REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN - Take advantage of the Early Bird Price!

The world has reached a nadir for human suffering. Social media is spreading incitement like wildfire. The Security Council is paralyzed by the veto. And the International Criminal Court is under attack by friends and foes alike. How should International Law and Justice respond? That is the question at the heart of the American Branch of the International Law Association's "International Law Weekend Midwest 2019," a day-long conference featuring two dozen of the world’s foremost experts at atrocity law and policy, held at Case Western Reserve University School of Law on September 20, 2019. The keynote speaker is Sean Murphy, President of the American Society of International Law and a member of the U.N. International Law Commission, where is serves as special rapporteur for crimes against humanity.  Panelists include ABILA President Leila Sadat, ABILA Vice President Michael Scharf, and ABILA Board Members Ved Nanda, Jennifer Trahan, and Milena Sterio.
