Event Details

International law continues to play a critical role in a wide range of cases before UK Courts. Recent developments include clarification of the rules of treaty interpretation, matters of human rights, consideration of the scope of state immunity and foreign act of state, the registration and enforcement of ICSID and non-ICSID awards, and the reliance on international law in judicial review.

Building on their vast experience and expertise, the panellists will discuss some of the most recent key cases and critically reflect on the broader trends and implications for how international law is being used by the domestic courts.


The Hon Mrs Justice Karen Steyn KC 


Event convened by Kristin Hausler, Dorset Senior Research Fellow in Public International Law and Director, Centre for International Law, BIICL.
