Conference: Dialogues between International and Public Law

Screenshot 2016-03-07 22.08.29The following will be of interest to IACL members and followers. In publicising this event, we congratulate Professor Christina Murray (a former vice-president of the IACL) on her appointment as Director of the Bingham Centre for the Rule of Law, based at BIICL in London.

From 30 June to 1 July 2016, BIICL and the Melbourne Law School (MLS) will host a two-day conference in London that will bring together for the first time leading academics and practising lawyers to pool knowledge and share perspectives on the changing relationship between public international law and domestic public law in different jurisdictions.

This event will allow a constructive dialogue on how national public law and public international law and practice should and must co-exist, combining theory with case studies and the experience of practitioners.

Speakers for this unique conference will be drawn from international academia, law firms, public administration and the judiciary. The following individuals have agreed to speak (subject in some cases to confirmation of topics and panel allocations), and other speakers will be confirmed shortly:

  • Professor Cheryl Saunders, Melbourne Law School
