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.

The European Society of International Law (ESIL) 2018 Annual Conference is organised by the Manchester International Law Centre between 13-15 September 2018. WILNET and the Interest Group on Feminism in International Law of the ESIL are organising a joint event on 13 September to discuss obstacles women face entering the international law field or advancing in their career and how we can inspire new areas of movement in feminist legal futures.
The event will be attended by prominent scholars working on feminism in international law, including Christine Chinkin, Hilary Charlesworth, Louise Arimatsu, Yassin Brunger, Troy Lavers and Loveday Hodson.
The event is open to all and does not require registration to the main Conference. We invite all women international lawyers to attend the event and to share their experiences with fellow participants.
The event will take place at Renold Building, University of Manchester, Room F1 between 9.00 and 12.30. You can find more details about the event here.
If you would like to attend, please register on Eventbrite.
