Summit 2014 (31st Jan - 2nd Feb 2014)

It gives us great pleasure to present to you the 5th Government Law College International Law Summit, organized by the Students for the Promotion of International Law (SPIL), Mumbai. The Summit is scheduled to take place from the 31st January-2nd February, 2014.

SPIL has undertaken the task of promoting International law and taking legal studies beyond textual knowledge, hence encouraging its members to think out of the box. The Government Law College International Law Summit is a direct result of this constant endeavor.

The Summit, aside from the key note addresses, lectures, workshops and call for papers, comprises of two novel competitions which were conceived within our institution. Our association with premier institutions such as the International Law Student Association, Chicago and the Indian Society of International Law, New Delhi have only added to our credentials, and have ensured interest and participation from reputed law schools across the world.

The Theme for the 2014 edition of the Summit is International Investment Law. International Investment Law has become very prominent in the international legal sphere, spurred on by the explosion of Bilateral Investment Treaties between States and with a sharp rise in the investment disputes, this field has now acquired a genuine and practical significance, both for companies making investments abroad and for the host countries where such investments are made.
