International Law in the English Legal System <br><br>

14th April 2008

In the past few years, arguments involving international law have increasingly been put before the English courts and a number of recent decisions have put into question traditional views as to the place of international law in the English legal system. The 17th SLS international law section/BIICL conference will examine various issues arising out of the new jurisprudence.

Panels will cover the legal effects of unincorporated treaties and other international instruments (including Security Council resolutions); customary international law and English law; non-justiciability and act of State; and the relationships between human rights, international criminal law and State immunity in English law.
