What is the use of international law and how do we engage with it? Over the last few years, the focus appears to have been on disengagement. Yet, at the same time, international courts and tribunals are busier than ever before, while domestic courts have an increasing engagement with international legal issues. Likewise, international law features to a greater extent than ever before in the conduct of public life and debate.
The London Conference on International Law will bring together international law academics, judges, practitioners, representatives of civil society, business-leaders, and other stakeholders to see how States and all other actors engage with international law.
