About Us

The International Law and Policy Society (ILPS) of NLUO is a pedagogical society focusing on international conventions, regulations, and recent developments. International law, according to us, is of paramount importance, primarily because it helps countries throughout the world maintain cordial relations with each other and initiate access to fundamental human rights. The primary aim of our society is to spread adequate awareness about the various facets of international law.

ILPS has, via research, working papers, publications, seminars, webinars, conferences, projects, and engagement provided a platform for intellectual dialogue on contemporary issues of public international law and foreign policy.

We at ILPS aim to rejuvenate consciousness amongst the masses through our ILPS posts, blogs, and monthly newsletters. The blogs focus on all the cardinal changes in the international law arena, and the newsletter aims to cover all the major updates of a particular month and streamline them accordingly for better understanding. All these are student-edited and are kept up-to-date by the members of our society working together.

Our society, through the website, expects to interact with an array of parties, including scholars, universities, think tanks, and intergovernmental organizations.

Convenor's Note

It is the only society at the university that covers every aspect of international law and policy, its main objective is to increase awareness of public and private international law among law students, especially those who are considering it as a possible topic of study or career.

The International Law and Policy Society is one of the most active student organizations on campus with a strong relationship with its alumni network, which gives students the opportunity to familiarize themselves with the areas of international trade, investment law, and policy issues. The society has made a name for itself in a short period of time by doing exemplary work and showing a great amount of passion and dedication to the cause.
