This year, the Canadian Partnership for International Justice (CPIJ) will provide funding for students to attend the 48th Annual Conference of the Canadian Council on International Law (CCIL). The event, themed “Diversity and International Law“, will take place on October 24 and 25, 2019, in Ottawa.

The CCIL seeks to encourage the study of international law and to broaden relations and dialogues between international lawyers, scholars, individuals and organizations across Canada and around the world. To accomplish these objectives, the CCIL notably organizes international law events including its signature Annual Conference, to which CPIJ experts usually participate.

Selected students will have their registration to the conference fully covered. Following their attendance to the event, they are expected to write a 1000-1500 word blogpost to be published on one of the following platforms chosen by the student: Quid Justitiæ, IntLawGrrlsJustice in Conflict or the Philip Kirsch Institute Global Justice Journal. The post should follow the formatting rules specific to the chosen platform.

  • Availability to attend the conference;
  • Availability to write a blogpost following the event (the blogpost may be co-written with another student).
