ANZSIL Oceans and International Environmental Law Workshop

  • 16 Apr 2020
  • 17 Apr 2020
  • Centre for Public Law at Victoria University of Wellington

In cooperation with the ANZSIL Oceans and International Environmental Law Interest Group (OIELIG), on 16 and 17 April 2020, the Centre for Public Law at Victoria University of Wellington is hosting an event for ANZSIL members who would like to workshop a paper in the fields of international environmental law or law of the sea. The goal of the event is to get feedback on a piece of academic writing that is at an advanced draft stage.

Participants will circulate their papers in advance of the workshop and may be asked to be a commentator on another person’s paper. Although the author of the paper will have a short time to speak to their paper, the bulk of the time will be devoted to discussion and feedback. There is no obligation to publish the piece in a particular place, so it is an ideal opportunity to test a paper before it is finalised. However, if there is sufficient interest the organisers may explore publication options. As well as getting incredible input into your writing, this is also a valuable opportunity to network with others working in the field.

At this stage, we have a limited amount of funding to assist some members with accommodation costs in Wellington. This will not cover all participants, so we will be prioritising assistance to early career researchers within 10 years of graduation or commencing their academic career. We will be seeking further assistance from ANZSIL and may be able to cover some travel costs, but most participants will have to fund their own airfares.

The event will be held in the week following Easter. This has been chosen to try to fit within as many university breaks as possible.

Because space is limited we anticipate having a competitive abstract submission. This is likely to be due later this year, and we will issue a call in the next few months.

The workshop is being coordinated by Joanna Mossop. She is interested in having a couple of people to assist with the organisation of the workshop. If you are interested, please get in touch with her at

Membership of the OIELIG (like all ANZSIL Interest Groups) is open to all current members of ANZSIL – if you are not currently a member but would like to join, simply log in to the ANZSIL website using your dedicated username and password, and update your membership details (there is no additional fee).  

Kind regards

Camille Goodman, Holly Matley and Kerryn Brent (OIELIG Co-Chairs) and Joanna Mossop (Workshop Convenor)
