The Indian Society of International Law (ISIL), a premier national institution for teaching, research and promotion of international law in India, was established in 1959, primarily due to the efforts of the late V. K. Krishna Menon, Former Defence Minister.
The Indian Society of International Law (ISIL) announces the organisation of a World Congress on International Law at New Delhi from 16th – 18th January 2015.
The focus of the conference will be Contemporary Issues of International Law.
The objective is to ‘confederate’ different national and regional societies and other bodies engaged in promotion of study and spread of awareness of international law under one roof. The idea is to bring together scholars and national and regional
international law bodies drawn from diverse countries from different continents, forge a global network of such bodies devoted to international law, and deliberate on contemporary issues of international law as frequently as possible, at least once in
every two years. Such get-togethers amongst non-governmental bodies comprising academia, lawyers, diplomats,m parliamentarians, policymakers and members of judiciary from different countries, representing a cross-section of International Law academia and practitioners on one platform would provide a continuous framework for exchange of ideas, joint seminars, conferences, workshops, research collaborations between and amongst various national and regional societies, and meeting in some important city in a country willing to host such meetings. Furthermore, this network of international law societies will hopefully and eventually seek to establish The World Society of International Law.
