Centre for International and Public Law

The Centre for International and Public Law (CIPL) was established in 2004 to promote excellence in the research and teaching of public law and international law. The aim is to contribute to the critical understanding of the role of national and international institutions in promoting human rights, justice and the rule of law. The Centre runs a number of events throughout the year for academics, practitioners and students. Lord Bill Brett launched the seminar series on 11 May 2004, giving a talk entitled "The Report of the World Commission on the Social Dimensions of Globalisation".
