CFP: The Resiliance of International Law


International Law Weekend 2019: The Resilience of International Law


International Law Weekend 2019 (ILW 2019) calls on scholars and practitioners to address the resilience of international law. The conference will explore international law’s capacity to preserve the rule of law, promote both peace and justice, and maintain stability in the face of growing fault lines. The world is changing. ILW 2019 seeks to answer whether its theme—The Resilience of International Law—is a question or an affirmation.

The ILW Organizing Committee invites the submission of abstracts relating to “The Resilience of International Law.” We will select several abstracts for presentation at ILW 2019 as part of a panel of new professionals. The abstracts may be based upon ongoing work. While all submissions are welcome, preference will be given to papers not already published. Eligibility is restricted to applicants working in the field of international law for five years or less. Applicants should be ABILA members at the time of their presentation. (To join ABILA, please visit: https://www.ila-americanbranch.org/accounts/reg_plans/.)

Applicants must submit the following in a single PDF document:
(1) a 500 word abstract of their paper;
(2) a cover letter describing their professional development and a statement explaining how their submission fits with the conference theme; and
(3) a curriculum vitae.

The submission deadline is July 29, 2019. Submissions should be sent to [email protected] with the subject line “Emerging Voices - ILW 2019.”

Questions may also be submitted to: [email protected]

Submissions will be competitively selected in a peer review process. Applicants will be notified by August 30, 2019.

ILW 2019 is scheduled for October 10-12, 2019 in New York City and will be held at Fordham Law School. Accepted applicants will be invited to present their papers at the Emerging Voices panel, which will be chaired by a senior scholar or practitioner. Accepted applicants will be required to pay for their own travel and lodging. A panel member who is only attending their individual panel is not required to register for the conference or pay the registration fee. If they plan to attend other panels, we do ask that they register for the conference and pay the fee.
