A call for presentations has been issued for the Fifth Annual Junior Faculty Forum for International Law, which will be held at New York University School of Law June 27-29, 2016. The closing deadline for applications is December 15, 2015.
Designed as an annual feature of the international law calendar, the Forum is aimed at bringing together junior faculty working in the field of international law in order that their work can be presented before an audience of peers and experts and then discussed by established and senior scholars in international law and related fields. The initiative is thus dedicated toward encouraging and facilitating the work of young international law scholars by creating an unrivalled environment of intellectual opportunity, stimulation and exchange.
The fifth Forum shall be convened by the Forum’s founding convenors—Dino Kritsiotis, Professor of Public International Law in the University of Nottingham; Anne Orford, Michael D. Kirby Professor of International Law in the University of Melbourne and J.H.H. Weiler, President of the European University Institute and University Professor at NYU School of Law—who shall be joined by guest convenors Benedict Kingsbury, Murray and Ida Becker Professor of Law at NYU School of Law, and José E. Alvarez, Herbert and Rose Rubin Professor of International Law at NYU School of Law, both of whom currently serve as the Editors-in-Chief of the American Journal of International Law (AJIL).
For the first time next year, selected presentations from the fifth Forum will be published in AJIL.
