Role of the Agent in International Law Disputes

The Centre for International Law’s workshop on the Role of the Agent in International Law
Disputes
will bring together government lawyers from the region to explore what works—and does not—when taking on this unique role in a dispute before an international court or tribunal. The workshop will cover issues around intra-government consultation and coordination, selection of and working with external counsel, case management, evidence gathering and historical research. It will not touch on the substance of any disputes. Speakers will include experienced government lawyers and leading external counsel. Participation is by invitation only, and the event is held under the Chatham House Rule.
