About ILJ’s Women’s Initiative
The mission of our newly founded Women’s Initiative is two-fold: First, we aim to support women students who are considering a career in international law by building a support network and introducing helpful resources. Second, we aim to highlight gender-related scholarship and debates in international law to amplify women’s voices and perspectives.
The following two initiatives strive to fulfill this mission
- Speaker Series: The Speaker Series consists of smaller roundtables and larger forums. Roundtables will be a safe space for women students to engage with women practitioners about possible career paths and advice. Larger events will be open to anyone interested and highlight women perspectives in international law.
- Online Series: The Online Series will consist of interviews and short pieces on gender-related international law topics. Students will conduct interviews with eminent women international lawyers and publish them on this website. We will also call for the submission of short pieces to our online journal on designated gender-related topics.
