70th Anniversary Celebration of the ILC

The FIU Law Review and Professor Charles C. Jalloh hosted The Role and Contributions of the ILC to the Development of International Law, a Symposium celebrating the 70th Anniversary of the International Law Commission.

The International Law Commission’s past, present, and future was assessed from the perspective of progressive development and codification of international law. Leading scholars and practitioners of international law including ILC members and Sixth Committee delegates were convened to interrogate how the foundational pillars of “progressive development” and “codification” of international law took concrete expression in the mandate and practice of the ILC. This 70th Anniversary Symposium reviewed the key accomplishments of the ILC over its 70 years, its distinctive features, and celebrated the Commission’s contributions to the establishment of a rule-based international legal order.

See below to read the articles contributed by some of the panelists and published under Professor Jalloh’s editorship in a special issue of the FIU Law Review, Volume 13, Number 6 in Spring 2019.
