The British Institute of International and Comparative Law and the Foreign and Commonwealth Office will co-host this conference on 'The Role of Legal Advisers in International Law'.

The conference will bring together current and former legal advisers, from various countries and a variety of legal and political systems, to discuss a number of issues critical to the role of the Government Legal Adviser, including: the functions of the legal adviser, the organisation and context for legal adviser's work, communication and contact between legal advisers from various countries and the role of public outreach. The conference will also include a roundtable on the space occupied by the legal adviser between law and politics.

This conference is part of a broader project being implemented by BIICL and which is looking at British Influences on International Law between 1915 and today. Find out more about the project here
