13 Dec Events and Announcements: 13 December 2020
BIICL Webinar Series: Teaching International Law: The British Institute of International and Comparative Law (BIICL) is convening a webinar series on ‘Teaching International Law’ on 8 January – 23 April 2021. The practice of teaching international law is conducted in a wide range of contexts across the world by a host of different actors. It is somewhat surprising, therefore, that reflections and collaborations on the practice of teaching international law remain relatively rare.
In recent decades, notable contributions concerning international legal pedagogy include: comparative analyses of how different national communities of international lawyers construct their understanding of international law, regional and national reflections on the teaching of international law, critical perspectives on the politics of teaching international law, as well as reflections on the professionalisation of international legal education, teaching techniques, and the use of new technologies for teaching international law.
This series composed of 10 webinars over 5 sessions will explore some of these issues and developments. Bringing together a cohort of over 50 teachers of international law from across the globe, and who apply a range of techniques and approaches to their teaching, the series is sure to inform and inspire. Further information about the event and registration is available on the Event page.
