About Jindal Society of International Law

The Jindal Society of International Law is a student-led initiative under the aegis of the Centre for the Study of United Nations of Jindal Global Law School, and the guidance of Faculty Coordinator Professor (Dr.) Vesselin Popovski. Founded in 2020, this Society is an initiative to provide a platform to young international law enthusiasts.

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. We aim to provide a space to young international law enthusiasts to nurture their interest in the field.

About the Lecture Series 'Exploring the Ecosystem of International Law'

Our Fall Lecture Series of 2021, 'Exploring the Ecosystem of International Law', builds upon the introduction given on internationalism and international law by the concluded Spring Lecture Series, titled ‘Future of Internationalism and International Law’. The Fall Series endeavours to study the different contours of international law. To assist in this study, the speakers will cover and address their respective areas of expertise, based upon their years of research and practice. Given the vast ecosystem and the engagement of international law in it, the Society aims to study the fragmentation and fertilisation of the various disciplines in this ecosystem.

The lowest common denominator in this Fall Lecture Series is to enhance and provide a deeper understanding of international law through international lawyers. The Society, for its members, is a well of knowledge and a quorum of thought provoking discussions, which will be resultant of this engagement with experts aimed at exploring the ecosystem of international law.

The fourth lecture of our Fall 2021 Lecture Series, is on the topic ‘The Plurality of International Proceedings in an Era of Multiple Courts and Tribunals'. The lecture will be hosted online and is scheduled for 17:00 IST on 20th August 2021. The distinguished speaker for this lecture is Professor Dr. Laurence Boisson De Chazournes.


Laurence Boisson de Chazournes is Professor of international law at the Faculty of Law of the University of Geneva as well as Director of the Geneva LL.M. in International Dispute Settlement (MIDS) and Co-Director of the Geneva Center for International Dispute Settlement (CIDS).

Visiting professors at the Aix Marseille University and the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies, she has also been invited as a guest lecturer at numerous universities worldwide. She acts or has acted as advocate and counsel before the International Court of Justice (ICJ) and the International Tribunal of the Law of the Sea (ITLOS) and as arbitrator in various dispute settlement (ICISD, PCA, ICC, SCC).
