Hybrid Event

The Sydney Centre for International Law at Sydney Law School is delighted to present the eighth International Law Year in Review Conference, to be held at the Law School on Friday 17 February 2023.

For the first time ever, SCIL will also host a student writing competition, with the winner of $1000 first prize to be announced at the International Year in Review Conference, and a works-in-progress event on 16 February 2023.

This annual ‘year in review’ conference gives participants insight into the latest developments in international law over the preceding year, especially those most salient for Australia.  Participants can attend in-person or remotely.

Among other things, panels will address:

  • armed conflict in Ukraine
  • interstate dispute resettlement (ISDS)

The conference will traverse recent developments in public international law, treaty-making, international criminal law, international environmental law, and international trade and investment law. Speakers will include leading academics, practitioners and government lawyers.

Participation will enable lawyers and non-lawyers alike to remain abreast of important trends in international affairs.

Works-in-Progress Event

SCIL is hosting a works-in-progress event to be held on Thursday, 16 February 2023, the day before the International Year in Review Conference.  In addition to the various working sessions, works-in-progress participants will be invited to attend a special Thursday-night keynote presentation by Professor Gerry Simpson of the London School of Economics, who will be in discussion with Associate Professor Emily Crawford of Sydney Law School on “International Law and Ukraine”.

The purpose of the works-in-progress event is to help authors, particularly junior authors, develop draft articles for publication.  As a result, participants will need to have at least a working draft by the time the conference takes place.

Submissions should bear some relationship to either:

  1. Armed conflict in Ukraine
    OR
  2. Interstate dispute settlement (ISDS) involving investment treaties or free trade agreements.

The best papers will focus on the events of 2022.  There is no requirement that papers discuss Australian law.

Works-in-progress proposals are due no later than 1 November 2022.  Click here for more information about eligibility, attendance and submission.
