SLS International Law Subject Section: call for papers for Nottingham Conference

SLS  International  Law  Subject  Section:  call  for papers for Nottingham

Dear section member,

Planning  is  now in hand for this year's SLS conference, which, as you may
know, is being held at the University of Nottingham on 9-12 September 2014.
The conference theme is ?Judging in the 21st Century.

The  International  Law  section  will  be in Group A this year and will be
meeting  in the first half of the conference, on Tuesday 9 and Wednesday 10
September  2014.   I'm  now  asking for volunteers to present papers at the
four sessions that have been allocated to us.  Discussion of any aspects of
public international law will be welcome.  The deadline for proposals is 11
th  April  2014  but  all  that  I  require is a provisional title, a short
abstract  (two  or  three  lines  detailing what the paper is about) and an
indication  of  your  willingness  to  participate.   In due course, if you
commit to presenting a paper, I will need at least an abstract of it by the
end  of  July.  As usual, drafts of working papers are as welcome as finely
honed  pieces  ready  for  publication.  As in previous years, a best paper
prize  for a paper presented by an SLS member will be awarded.  Details can
be found on the SLS web site.

If  you  are  offering more than one paper at the conference, please let me
know.  This is to enable better planning; it does not mean that individuals
are never allowed to present more than one paper.

I  am  also  asked  to  remind  you  that speakers do have to book into the
conference and pay the appropriate fees.

In  the  meantime,  if  you  do  wish  to offer a paper, please reply to me
directly (
