The Sydney Centre for International Law at Sydney Law School is delighted to present the sixth International Law Year in Review Conference, to be held at the Law School on 23 February 2018. The conference will give participants insight into the latest developments in international law over the preceding year, especially those most salient for Australia.

Speakers at the conference will include leading academics, practitioners and government lawyers, and will provide an in-depth and critical analysis of contemporary developments in international law, in areas including public international law and treaty-making, international humanitarian, human rights and criminal law, and regional approaches to international law. Participation will enable lawyers and non-lawyers alike to remain abreast of important trends in international affairs.

Highlights of the day will include a keynote address by Senator Ivana Bacik, Reid Professor of Criminal Law (Trinity College Dublin) on 'Marriage Equality and Abortion Rights in Ireland'; and a literary lunch with award winning journalist and foreign correspondent Peter Greste, author of 'The First Casualty'.
