Conference: 2010 Annual Conference of the ILA - British Branch (Reminder)

The annual conference of the British Branch of the International Law Association will take place later this week, on April 15th and 16th, 2010, hosted by the Law Department of Oxford Brookes University. (I previously noted the call for papers.) The provisional program is here. Here's the idea:
The theme for this year’s conference is compliance. The normative evolution, acceptance and development of international law continues, yet so too does the phenomenon of non-compliance. A number of papers will be presented by speakers from both academic and practitioner backgrounds on the practical and theoretical issues raised by questions of compliance understood broadly, across all areas of international law. The session themes include: Norms; Human Rights; Judges; Business; and Non-State Actors.
