Oxford Reports on International Law (ORIL) brings together decisions on public international law from international law courts, domestic courts, and ad hoc tribunals, and is the most up-to-date source of international case law available. The Reports on International Trade Law Decisions (ITLD) module, led by the Leuven Centre for Global Governance Studies at the University of Leuven, under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Jan Wouters and Prof. Dr. Geert Van Calster, is a database providing expert commentary and analysis of case law of trade-related international dispute settlement systems, focusing on issues relating to public international law. So far, the database covers cases decided by, inter alia, the WTO’s Dispute Settlement Body (Panels and the Appellate Body), NAFTA, MERCOSUR and the Caribbean Court of Justice.
We are currently looking for new (or already experienced) English and/or Spanish/Portuguese-speaking contributors that are experts in the fields of public international law, WTO law, and international trade law who would like to take part in the project. Contributors are asked to draft short case notes (comprising of a summary of the facts and holdings, as well as an analysis of its significance for public international law; amounting to around 2.500 words) on judgments from the abovementioned tribunals. You will be credited as the sole author, and each case note will be published online in the Oxford Reports on International Law – Reports on International Trade Law Decisions module. Moreover, you may use case notes as the basis for a subsequent publication provided it is not identical (in which case consent from OUP would need to be asked), and due reference is made to the earlier OUP case note. Additionally, authors of case notes will be compensated with a 45 EUR sum or 90 EUR worth of OUP book credits per note by Oxford University Press.
If you are interested in collaborating with us and are willing to contribute to this project, please send us a short description of your background and experience, insofar relevant. Considering the broad scope of this project, feel free to forward this invitation to equally qualified colleagues who may be interested to submit case notes.
Thank you in advance and we are at your disposal should you have additional queries. Please mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
