Women in International Law Network

The Olive Schill Society

One of WILNET’s main purposes is to give women in the international law forum a voice. To that end, we are launching a new post series where young woman international lawyers and students can talk about their work or research and discuss it with their peers. This will provide a new platform to young women to share their research agenda, raise the main issues they discuss in their study or work and receive comments. This will also allow students who work on similar topics to get in contact and eventually share opinions with each other. The piece does not necessarily have to reflect on the whole of the research or work, but might raise the main problems that the thesis or the research is dealing with, or raise a particularly controversial part of the study which would benefit from comments by WILNET readers.

We call all young woman international lawyers and especially postgraduate women students [masters or PhD], whose subject area is related to international law, to write a piece no longer than 1500 words to be published on our website. We hope that this new series will create a constructive platform for all young woman international lawyers and postgraduate students to showcase their work and provide a forum for lively discussion.

You can send your piece to wilnet@manchester.ac.uk. Please also add a short bio to your email. Do not hesitate to email us if you have any questions. We look forward to receiving your contributions and reading about your research and work!
