Earlier today Anne Orford of the University of Melbourne Law School, JHH Weiler of the NYU School of Law, and Dino Kritsiotis of the University Of Nottingham School Of Law launched the Third Annual Junior Faculty Forum for International Law.
The Forum is designed to assist junior faculty, i.e. those within the first six years of their academic careers, with their research by staging an annual competition in which six to nine individuals will be selected and asked to make presentations to the Forum in a given year: these presentations will then be paired with senior international legal scholars, who will comment on each of the presentations given to the Forum, so that the papers are eventually worked up and prepared for publication in the European Journal of International Law.
The third Forum will be convened at the University of Melbourne on July 7, 8 and 9, 2014. The deadline for submission of applications is December 1, 2013. Further particulars of the process are now available on http://www.annualjuniorfacultyforumIL.org.
