At a time where there is a continuing necessity to promote the place of women working in international law, we are proud to launch the Women in International Law Network: The Olive Schill Society (WILNET). Founded by women researchers of the Manchester International Law Centre, this new platform aims to provide a professional community for women international lawyers at any stage of their career to discuss both their experiences in- and pathways into- the field.
We are a growing community of women from all walks of international law life – from academia, international organisations, non-governmental organisations, independent consultancy, private practice, governments, or education. Follow our website for our latest activities.
