8 February 2018 The Centre for International Law, with the support of International Law Association (Singapore), will bring the Singapore legal community together for the inaugural International Law Year in Review Conference. The Conference aims to provide knowledge and insight into the latest developments in international law and legal practice from a Singaporean and global perspective.
Topics to be canvassed include key developments at the International Court of Justice and other international courts and tribunals, significant treaty-making, legislative and judicial developments and key issues to watch. Participation will give lawyers and non-lawyers alike a broad overview of the key trends in international law.
Dr Kate Parlett will join Alison Macdonald QC (Matrix Chambers) and Loretta Malintoppi (39 Essex Chambers) on a panel addressing ‘International Law Disputes’ to provide an overview of the key international law cases of 2017, as well as those in the pipeline – including the judgment of the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea in the Ghana and Côte d’Ivoire maritime boundary dispute, the award of the arbitral tribunal in the Slovenia and Croatia land and maritime boundary dispute, and the current conciliation between Timor-Leste and Australia. The moderator will be Mr VK Rajah SC, former Attorney-General of Singapore.
Registration is available on the CIL website.
