The next International Law in Domestic Courts (ILDC) Workshop will be held at the University of Chicago on Friday, May 17. Professor Curt Bradley has graciously agreed to host the workshop this year.

The ILDC is an interest group of the American Society of International Law. Its purpose is to promote dialogue among scholars and lawyers who are interested in issues pertaining to the application of international law and foreign relations law in domestic courts. The ILDC holds a workshop once a year to provide an opportunity for those interested to present works-in-progress and exchange ideas in an informal atmosphere.

This year, we have modified the workshop format in response to member feedback. Instead of full-length papers, we are soliciting earlier stage works-in-progress that are 10-12 pages long. These shorter papers may be precis for new projects or excerpts from more complete articles. The goal of the workshop is to provide substantive feedback on true works-in-progress in advance of the summer writing season. We encourage submissions from both junior and senior scholars.

If you have a project that you would like to workshop, please send an abstract (or more, if you prefer) to interest group co-chairs Bill Dodge ( and Maggie Gardner ( by Wednesday, January 31. Following the selection of projects, we will solicit volunteers to serve as commentators.
