Call for Papers
Australian Year Book of International Law: Honouring Judge James Crawford: Volume 40 of the Australian Year Book of International Law will be dedicated to the memory of the late H.E. Judge James Crawford AC SC FBA. In addition to a long and distinguished career as an academic, practitioner, arbitrator, and judge, James was a friend and mentor to many. We hope that papers in this volume will reflect on some of his numerous contributions to the field of public international law, and particularly international law in Australia, by engaging with one or more of his varied roles.
We welcome paper proposals reflecting on James’ contributions to the field in such roles as:
- Role in institutional law reform and codification efforts (eg. Australian Law Reform Commission and the International Law Commission);
- Legal Advisor;
- Counsel (especially reflections on his oral or written advocacy);
- Arbitrator; and
Abstracts of up to 500 words on any of these topics accompanied by a short 1-page CV should be sent to the Editors at aybil[at]anu[dot]edu[dot]au by 15 August 2021. Applicants will be notified of outcomes no later than 10 September 2021, and a virtual workshop to develop papers based on the accepted abstracts may be held in December 2021. We anticipate final papers would need to be submitted no later than 15 February 2022 to meet a publishing deadline of June 2022.
You are also welcome to contact the Editors at any time on aybil[at]anu[dot]edu[dot]au to discuss your proposal or seek clarification regarding the Call for Papers.
