ILSA Conference in Istanbul, Turkey
The International Law Students Assocation (ILSA) will hold an international conference in Istanbul, Turkey on July 7-10. The conference is organized by the ILSA Chapter at Bahcesehir University and is titled “Discussing Global Issues within the Framework of the United Nations.” Registration for the conference is now open.
The conference, like the Jessup, is expected to be an enthusiastic academic and cultural exchange fuelled by participation from students from around the world. Conference events will include:
- Lectures by leading academics and practitioners from the international legal field;
- Panel discussions among students and academics about the UN Security Council and its role in the 21st century, the proliferation of courts within the UN system, and the involvement of the UN in non-international armed conflicts, among other topics;
- The opportunity for students to participate in Model UN negotiations; and
- Social and networking events including cocktail parties and tours of Istanbul.
