About Jindal Society of International Law
JSIL, founded in 2020, is a student-led initiative aiming to provide a platform to young international law enthusiasts to nurture their interest in the field. The purpose of this Society is to increase student interaction with the subject matter of international law through its various initiatives. Rather than being primarily research-driven, we intend to offer a host of experiences that contribute towards skill-building, thereby increasing the knowledge database available to students. This Society is an attempt to bridge the lacuna by streamlining resources and inculcating an overall interest in the vast expanses of international law.
About the Lecture Series
The Spring 2022 Lecture Series offers a compendium of scholarship from the Academy and professional experience from the Bar. It is important to understand the law and its challenges from broader, different and differing vantage points. Acknowledging, international law is a creation of states, it is also important to understand and appreciate the social sciences and humanities that have played a key role in shaping the law. Thus, a broader study becomes critical which the Lecture Series aims to provide. Through this Lecture Series, it is also hoped that one will develop a deeper understanding of Phillip Jessup’s magnum opus, A Modern Law of Nations: An Introduction (1949), “So long as the international community is composed of states, it is only through an exercise of their will, as expressed through treaty or agreement or as laid down by an international authority deriving its power from states, that a rule of law becomes binding”.
