International law and order must continue to thrive in an evolutionary age.

Since the Second World War, global governance has developed through a rules-based international order centred on Treaties and International Organisations, with dispute resolution conducted by International Courts and Arbitral Tribunals.

Recently, however, this approach has been the focus of closer scrutiny and challenge.

How legitimate and accountable are these structures?

Are they fit for purpose in the 21st Century?

On 13 March 2018, the Young Barristers’ Committee, in partnership with the Royal Commonwealth Society, will be hosting a seminar that looks at these issues and more, focusing on:

  • the functioning of and interplay between International Institutions;

  • Investment Treaty Arbitration;

  • Human Rights; and

  • Public Policy.

Join the Foreign Office Legal Adviser Iain McLeod and a panel of other expert speakers.

The session will be followed by a drinks reception, which will be the perfect opportunity to meet other internationally-minded professionals.
