Conference: The Role of Legal Advisers In International Law

On February 26, 2015, the British Institute of International and Comparative Law and the Foreign and Commonwealth Office will co-host a conference on "The Role of Legal Advisers in International Law." The program is here. Here's the idea:
The conference will bring together current and former legal advisers, from various countries and a variety of legal and political systems, to discuss a number of issues critical to the role of the Government Legal Adviser, including: the functions of the legal adviser, the organisation and context for legal adviser's work, communication and contact between legal advisers from various countries and the role of public outreach. The conference will also include a roundtable on the space occupied by the legal adviser between law and politics.
