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.
SLS members and British Institute of International and Comparative Law Members will both be able to pay the members rate for this event. Full payment is required prior to the event. All cancellations must be made in writing to firstname.lastname@example.org no less than 5 working days prior to the event. If you wish to become a BIICL member the cost is: Individual £120, Full-time Academic £80 and Full-time Student £25
