SPIL has undertaken the task of promoting International law and taking legal studies beyond textual knowledge, hence encouraging its members to think out of the box. The Government Law College International Law Summit is a direct result of this constant endeavor.
The Summit, aside from the key note addresses, lectures, workshops and call for papers, comprises of two novel competitions which were conceived within our institution. Our association with premier institutions such as the International Law Student Association, Chicago and the Indian Society of International Law, New Delhi have only added to our credentials, and have ensured interest and participation from reputed law schools across the world.
The Theme for the 2015 edition of the Summit is ‘International Economic Law and Policy’. International Economic Law encompasses both the conduct of sovereign states in international economic relations, and the conduct of private parties in cross-border economic and business transactions.
The capitalistic threats to development have proved to be averse to sustainable development because of its excesses, while the helplessness of the 3rd world countries has created a dangerous porosity to achieve development. Yet there has to be a balance to move the world economy forward. Thus, there is need for international concern to harmonize development strategies to protect the developed and underdeveloped countries, with a view to preserving the world environment.
All members of the legal fraternity, practitioners, professors and students are invited to present original academic works at the 6th Government Law College International Law Summit.
