I am just on my way back from the 4th Research Forum of the European Society of International Law in Tallinn, Estonia. Many thanks are due to Lauri Malksoo and his team for organizing an excellent event. Some news from ESIL follow below.
The ESIL-ASIL-EJIL-HiiL symposium “Global Public Goods and the Plurality of Legal Orders” will be held at the European University Institute (EUI), Florence, on 24 -25 October 2011. The symposium is arranged by the Academy of European Law (EUI), the European Society of International Law, the American Society of International Law, the European Journal of International Law, and the HiiL project on Private Transnational Regulatory Regimes. Further details will be available on the ESIL website shortly.
The 5th ESIL Biennial Conference “Regionalism and International Law” will be held in Valencia, Spain, on 6-8 September 2012.
The 5th ESIL Research Forum “International Law as Profession’’ will be held in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, in May 2013. The Society particularly wishes to encourage younger scholars to engage in research, particularly empirical research, about the various aspects of the international legal profession and legal professionals.
Finally, ESIL would like to invite its members to register for the MILE 2.0 project, the first professional directory specifically dedicated to international law professionals. The database is fed by ESIL members themselves, who create and manage their profile online. All profiles can then be browsed or searched through a powerful search engine.
