1. ILA Call for Applications: Director of Studies. The International Law Association (ILA) was founded in Brussels in 1873 and is an Association for the study, clarification and development of public and private international law and the furtherance of international understanding and respect for international law. The ILA is now inviting applicants to put forward their candidacy for the position of Director of Studies (DOS) of the Association. The DOS is an Officer of the ILA playing a vital role in the realisation of the objectives of the Association through their work co-ordinating and managing all aspects of the Committees and Study Groups, in addition to being a member of the Management Committee (MC) and acting as Trustee of the Charity. This is a senior position, for which more information (and the process of application) can be found here.

2. The Power of International Law Talk. This talk by Professor Martti Koskenniemi will take place on 25 April at the Department of War Studies, King’s College London (Bush House, Strand Campus). After Ukraine and Gaza, how should we think about the power of international law? Does it have any? This talk will examine the different ways in which international law as a professional language, a set of institutions and practices, frames and informs the life of international actors. International law is not only, or even predominantly something that those actors “use” to advance their interests (though it is that, too). See here for more information. 

3. Adjudicating War? A new front at the ICJ Lecture. On 11 April 2024, from 6-7 pm CET, Gleider Hernández (Catholic  University of Leuven) will give the next lecture of the TuLaw – Tübingen Lecture Series on the Laws of War. He will speak on: “Adjudicating War? A new front at the ICJ”. The lecture will discuss current proceedings in respect to the law of armed conflict, especially involving the invocation of obligations erga omnes. It will reflect both on doctrinal and technical questions as well as the wider systemic considerations raised by current proceedings. Email Jessica.oheim {at} student(.) to register. The Zoom link and login data will be sent to those registered ahead of the event.
