The Society for International Law and Policy (SILP) is an independent academic society operating directly under the aegis of West Bengal National University of Juridical Sciences, Kolkata.
SILP seeks to provide a platform for discussion and deliberation on various pertinent issues on international law and policy. Being an academic society, SILP has previously conducted discussions, seminars, and various other workshops, on matters ranging from adoption rights to environmental law.
These talks were graced by the presence of legal luminaries such as Lt. Hon’ble Justice Altamas Kabir, Dr. Ved P. Nanda, Prof. Armin Rosencranz, Prof. V. Umakanth, UNHCR Chef de Mission Mr. Hans Schroder, et al.
The members run a blog here, on which contributions – including, but not limited to, synopses of lectures, weekly news article updates, and write-ups of contemporary relevance – are updated regularly.
