International Law Students' Society

As the only student club within the Faculty of Law that encompasses all areas of international law, the ILS aims to promote an understanding of public and private international law, as well as encourage discussion between students, scholars and the broader legal community. This year, the ILS plans to host speaker events, allowing professionals in the field to share their experience and advice with our students. The ILS will also hold firm tours to give students an opportunity to network with practitioners and learn more about the real-world practice of international law.

The coming year also marks the 21st year of the annual Canadian International Law Students' Conference (CILSC), hosted by the ILS in collaboration with Osgoode Hall Law School. The conference gives students an opportunity to discuss international issues and Canada's role in the world with leading scholars and practitioners. Past keynote speakers include Denis Halliday (former UN Assistant Secretary-General), John Hancock (Senior Advisor to the Director-General of the WTO), Bill Graham (former Minister of Foreign Affairs), and the Honourable Roméo A. Dallaire. This year's conference will be held in late January.
