Submissions should be made here. Abstracts of no more than 500 words should be submitted together with your CV. Authors that will present at the Conference will also be invited to submit their papers to be considered for publication in Volume 8(2), the conference issue of the Journal, to be published in December 2019. Further information will be posted on the CILJ website in due course. In the interim, please contact conference {at} with any question or concerns.
2. New Additions to the UN Audiovisual Library of International Law. The Codification Division of the United Nations Office of Legal Affairs has updated its Moot Courts section under the Research Library of the UN Audiovisual Library of International Law (AVL), which provides a selection of lectures and legal instruments useful for preparing for moot courts competitions. A new page has been launched for the 2019 Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition. The page for the Concours Charles-Rousseau has also been updated for the current edition. Both pages are available on the AVL’s Moot Courts section. 
3. Stirling Law School Lecturer in International Commercial Law Vacancy. Stirling Law School is seeking to appoint a Lecturer in International Commercial Law. International Commercial law is broadly defined but we would be particularly interested to hear from applicants with specialisms in areas such as dispute resolution, international trade and/or corporate finance (including energy finance). The successful candidate would be able to teach across a range of undergraduate and postgraduate programmes, including the Scots law LLB, BA degrees and the proposed common law LLB and would be part of a team developing short course for international partners. The successful candidate would be expected to contribute effectively to our strong research culture and expected to produce high quality outputs, make grant applications and work towards creating impact. It is essential that the candidate has a Scots law LLB or an LLB from another UK jurisdiction or from a Common Law jurisdiction to be able to teach on accredited modules. For further information, including essential criteria and details on how to apply, please see here
4. Human Rights and Climate Change Event.  Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change and the Environment and LSE Law will be hosting a discussion on human rights and climate change.  An expert panel will discuss the links between human rights and climate change, and whether rights-based climate change claims are one future path to spurring climate action. For more information see here. This event is free and open to all with no ticket or pre-registration required. Entry is on a first come, first served basis.
5.  JIEL Call for Papers: “Trade Wars”. The Editorial Board of the Journal of International Economic Law is seeking papers for a forthcoming special issue on ‘Trade Wars’, planned for publication in late 2019. This special issue seeks to take stock of the current trade wars, provide an explanation of their causes and conditions of possibility, and offer reflections on the best responses to them, both in the short term and looking further ahead. Starting from the premise that the structure of the international economic order may be at a point of inflection, it both aims to set this moment in context, and to offer ideas for what international economic law could and should look like looking ahead. Proposals of no more than 750 words should be submitted by email to jiel {at} law.georgetown(.)edu by 30 November 2018. For more information, see here
