Announcements: LEES PhD Vacancies; BIICL Training Programme

Written by

PhD in International and Public Law, Ethics and Economics for Sustainable Development, Università degli Studi di Milano. The PhD Programme in Law, Ethics & Economics for Sustainability (LEES) is an interdisciplinary Program of the University of Milan.  The LEES aims at the creation of a global interdisciplinary research community that shares a commitment to the goals of sustainability. With courses, seminars, and scientific research activities held entirely in English, it addresses the complexities involved in sustainable development and uses a multidisciplinary approach that combines the contributions of law, ethics, and economics. There are 3 Doctoral Research Positions, meaning that the LEES program is seeking three outstanding and committed students to carry out a three-year multidisciplinary research project, based at more than one participating university (see the call for application and the course website). The deadline is 2 September 2022.

BIICL Training Programme: Autumn 2022. The British Institute of International and Comparative Law (BIICL) has launched its programme of training courses for autumn 2022. The programme will cover trade and investment, migration and refugee law, labour law, cultural heritage law, cross-border dispute resolution and climate change law and litigation, energy law and law of the sea amongst others. Each course is convened and taught by international experts from BIICL’s own team in collaboration with external partners, combining academic expertise with practical experience in these fields of law. Discounts for group bookings and individual members of BIICL are also available. A limited number of scholarships are available for each course to enable participation from individuals who cannot otherwise join the courses, and for people from communities that are currently under-represented in the legal community. More information can be found on the BIICL website.

I am very sorry for the negative comment, but I wonder why you keep advertising BIICL’s training on this academic blog. It seems to me that BIICL’s training courses are designed these days not as an academic activity, but purely as a commercial activity to bring money in – their very high fees and the lack of a meaningful student discount are all indicating who are their target clients. To be clear - there is really nothing wrong with this type of activity but again, it’s a purely commercial activity – nothing to do with higher education or academia – which you are supporting through the provision of free advertisement services.
In the name of promoting higher education, I will ask you to stop from doing so until BIICL agrees to offer affordable student fees for their training sessions. No student should pay £700 for a short ‘climate law’ module, and only those coming from the wealthiest families can afford these fees. (and please don’t waive the three scholarships as a response – demand is much higher).
