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.

After celebrating the seventieth birthday of the Nuremberg Trials last year, it is time to praise the people who have participated in fighting impunity after the Second World War. With this in mind, WILNET honours Cecelia Goetz, the first woman prosecutor at the Nuremberg Trials. Camille Talbot (University College London) highlights the key parts of her life and her contributions to international law practice.
