IILJ Colloquium

The IILJ Colloquium examines major theoretical issues in international law and provides a forum in which leading scholars present papers and students and faculty discuss them in a roundtable format. Speaker sessions are open to everyone in the NYU community.

The Colloquium in Spring 2018 was convened by Benedict Kingsbury, Thomas Streinz, and Joseph H.H. Weiler. It featured cutting edge work on “The International Law of Google”: Digital Economy Companies and Transnational Legal Orders. This course was taught as the Guarini Colloquium: The International Law of Global Digital Corporations in Fall 2018.

The Colloquium in Spring 2019 was convened by Benedict Kingsbury and Sally Engle Merry. Its focus was “Infrastructure, Rights and Regulation” in connection with the IILJ’s new InfraReg project.

Professors Kingsbury and Merry will reconvene the Colloquium in Fall 2019, with a continued focus on Infrastructure.
