The IALL Education Committee was established as the result of an effort to address how to best teach Public International Law Research to law students. The challenges faced on this issue are common across jurisdictions and by bringing together colleagues from many different parts of the world, a global perspective became possible.
Efforts made during workshops at the Annual Course in Barcelona and the Annual Course in Buenos Aires resulted in the Guidelines for Public International Law Research Instruction published on this page. This document makes no special claim to authority and should be considered a work in progress. The Education Committee plans to revisit the guidelines periodically and correct errors and omissions as they become known.
As its next area of focus, the committee is considering starting work on a guide for lesson plans for teaching foreign and comparative legal research. Any developments relating to this endeavour will be published on this page.
