What is the Institute?

An independent legal research institute with charitable status, unaffiliated to any university, the Institute is the only body of its sort in the UK. The Institute creates a diverse community of scholars and practitioners and serves as an unrivalled focal point for its substantial membership base. Institute members include judges, practising lawyers, regulators, government officials, international civil servants, academics and students. Its focus is on Comparative Law, Competition Law, European Law, Human Rights Law, and Investment Treaty Law, Public International Law and Private International Law.

The Institute is registered with the Law Society, the Bar for CPD hours, which can be claimed from the majority of its events.

International & Comparative Law Quarterly (ICLQ) is the journal of the British Institute of International and Comparative Law. It publishes papers on public and private international law and also comparative law. It has maintained its pre-eminence as one of the earliest and most important journals of its kind, encompassing human rights and European law. The journal encourages innovative and original articles that explore the interconnectedness between the legal subject areas, moving across the boundaries that divide the law in a way that provides vital analysis at a time when formal distinctions, in scholarship and between jurisdictions, are becoming less relevant. The ICLQ attracts scholarship of the highest standard from around the world, which contributes to the maintenance of its truly international frame of reference. The 'Shorter Articles, Comments, and Notes' and 'Current Developments' sections particularly enable the discussion of highly topical legal issues.
