4. Call For Papers: American Society of International Law International Courts and Tribunals Interest Group. The International Courts and Tribunals Interest Group (ICTIG) of the American Society of International Law (ASIL) has announced a call for papers. ICTIG will be holding a Works-in-Progress Conference on Friday, 3 February 2023.  The conference will be entirely virtual and will be hosted by the UIC Law School in Chicago, Illinois. They are accepting submissions on any topic related to international courts or tribunals. Abstracts (of 500 words or less) should be emailed in Word or PDF format to fords {at} uic(.)edu. The deadline to submit an abstract is 6 January 2023.  “Work-in-progress” means scholarship that has reached a stage at which it is substantial enough to merit serious discussion and critique but that has not yet appeared in print (and can still be revised after the workshop, if it has already been accepted for publication). The accepted papers will not be presented by their authors. Rather, each paper will be introduced and discussed first by a commentator before opening the discussion to the other participants. Each of the participants is expected to have read and to be prepared to discuss all the papers. The author of each paper will be given an opportunity to respond and ask questions at the end. This will be a virtual conference. For any questions or inquiries contact Professor Stuart Ford at fords {at} uic(.)edu.
