Chair and Moderator

Prof. Noah Weisbord, Queen’s University

Description

During the past seventy years, the ILC has made significant contributions to the development of modern international law. This celebratory session will reflect on some of the key contributions of the Commission that led to widely known global treaties in areas as diverse as the law of the sea, the law of treaties, and diplomatic protection. But the impact of the Commission’s work may extend beyond treaties to softer forms that might require further examination. This includes shaping State practice and legal opinion in the international legal community, as evidenced by reliance on the ILC’s work in the decisions of international and national courts, in the work of legal advisers to governments and international organizations, and in scholarly writings.
