Welcome to the official website of the Australian Branch of the International Law Association. The site is still under development, so please let us know if you have any feedback by email.
The International Law Association was founded in Brussels in 1873. It has consultative status, as an international non-governmental organisation, with a number of the United Nations specialised agencies.
The objectives of the International Law Association (Australian Branch) are to promote the study, elucidation and advancement of international law, public and private, the study of comparative law, the making of proposals for the solution of conflicts of law, and for the unification of law, and the furthering of international understanding and goodwill amongst persons of Australian citizenship and normally resident in Australia.
- Organising special events, such as public lectures and other functions of relevance to international law;
- Providing members to the International Committees of the International Law Association, which undertake research and prepare reports on topics of international law;
- Convening Domestic Committees, which undertake similar work on a purely domestic basis;
- Publishing, with the Sydney Centre for International Law, the Australian International Law Journal and other Publications; and
- Arranging Prizes and Internships.
