1.  In case you missed it, a new episode of EJIL: Live!, the Journal’s official podcast, is now available online. In this episode EJIL’s Editor-in-Chief, Prof. Joseph Weiler interviews Oisin Suttle of the University of Sheffield. They engage in an in-depth discussion of Suttle’s article, “Equality in Global Commerce: Towards a Political Theory of International Economic Law”, which appears in Vol. 25, Issue 4.

2.  Call for Proposals, International Law Weekend 2015 (ILW 2015) – the premier international law event of the fall season  – is scheduled for November 5-7, 2015, in New York City.  The event is sponsored by the American Branch of the International Law Association (ABILA) and the International Law Students Association (ILSA). The theme for 2015 is Global Problems, Legal Solutions: Challenges for Contemporary International Lawyers. ILW 2015 will explore the many roles that international law plays in addressing global challenges. The aim is to provide an opportunity for discussion and debate about the ways in which international law provides fundamental tools and mechanisms to address emerging global issues. ILW 2015 will offer engaging panels on current problems and innovative solutions in both public and private international law.  Panel proposals may concern any aspect of contemporary international law and practice including, but not limited to, international arbitration, international environmental law, national security, cyber law, use of force, human rights and humanitarian law, international organizations, international criminal law, international intellectual property, the law of the sea and outer space, transnational commercial and trade law. We expect the audience to include practitioners, academics, UN diplomats, business leaders, federal and state government officials, NGO leaders, writers, journalists, and interested citizens. We plan to have a broad array of both public international law and private international law topics. The ILW Organizing Committee invites proposals to be submitted online on or before Friday, March 20, 2015 via the ILW Panel Proposal Submission Form located here. ILW 2015 is scheduled to be held at 42 West 44th Street on Thursday evening, November 5, and at Fordham Law School at Lincoln Center on November 6 – 7, 2015. For questions regarding ILW 2015, please contact conferences {at} ilsa(.)org.  The 2015 ILW Program Committee Members are Chiara Giorgetti (University of Richmond Law School), Jeremy Sharpe (Office of the Legal Adviser, U.S. Department of State), David Stewart (President ABILA, Georgetown University Law Center), Santiago Villalpando (Office of Legal Affairs, United Nations), and Tessa Walker (ILSA).
