At the eve of opening its master of laws (LLM) program, the Department of Law & Justice has committed itself to building the necessary expertise within and spread the culture across Bangladesh. In that pursuit, this workshop focuses on advanced ways to study, research, and teach international law. It aims at creating a platform where participants can engage in meaningful discussions, develop ideas, and share experience related to the workshop theme. The School of Law at the University of Birmingham, UK has joined this initiative as a part of its commitment to global partnership in knowledge development and dissemination.
The intensive residential workshop will bring in 20 young international law academics from public and private universities in Bangladesh. While in residence, participants are going to review current scholarly developments, reconsider canonical texts and network with colleagues and peers.
