1. Planning is now in hand for the 2014 conference of the Society of Legal Scholars.  The SLS is the learned society for those who teach law in a university or similar institution or who are otherwise engaged in legal scholarship in Britain and Ireland.   This year’s conference will be held at the University of Nottingham on 9-12 September 2014. The conference theme is ‘Judging in the 21st Century’.

The International Law section will be meeting in the first half of the conference, on Tuesday 9 and Wednesday 10 September 2014, and proposals for papers to be presented at the four sessions that have been allocated to the group are now invited.  Discussions of any aspects of public international law are welcome and proposals need not relate to the conference theme.  The deadline for the submission of proposals is 11 April 2014, and proposals should include a provisional title, a short abstract (a paragraph detailing what the paper is about) and an indication of the author’s willingness to participate in the conference.  If you do wish to offer a paper, please contact Prof. Matthew Happold, co-convenor of the International Law section.

2. The European Society of International Law (ESIL), together with the American Society of International Law (ASIL) and the MIDS – Geneva LL.M. in International Dispute Settlement will co-organize a lecture entitled From the ICJ to the US Supreme Court : The Vienna Convention on Consular Relations, International Law, and the US Constitution.
