2. BIICL Webinar Series on Teaching International Law. The British Institute of International and Comparative Law (BIICL) is convening a webinar series on ‘Teaching International Law’. The practice of teaching international law is conducted in a wide range of contexts across the world by a host of different actors. In recent decades, notable contributions concerning international legal pedagogy include: comparative analyses of how different national communities of international lawyers construct their understanding of international law, regional and national reflections on the teaching of international law, critical perspectives on the politics of teaching international law, as well as reflections on the professionalisation of international legal education, teaching techniques, and the use of new technologies for teaching international law. This series composed of 10 webinars over 5 sessions will explore some of these issues and developments. Further information about the event and registration is available on the Event page.
