The Legal Science of the International

29 March @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Campbell McLachlan asks what contemporary salience the idea of law as legal science might have as a way of understanding the way in which international law operates and its capacity to withstand the many disintegrative pressures that it currently faces.

Campbell McLachlan KC, is this year’s Arthur Goodhart Visiting Professor of Legal Science in the University of Cambridge and a Fellow of Trinity Hall. He is Professor of Law at Victoria University of Wellington and a Member of the Institute of International Law.

His publications include Foreign Relations Law (CUP 2014) and International Investment Arbitration: Substantive Principles (2nd edn, OUP 2017). His book The Principle of Systemic Integration in International Law, which he is completing during his time in Cambridge, will be published by OUP later this year. He will give the General Course at The Hague Academy of International Law in 2024 on the topic: On the interface between public and private international law.

He is a member of the Permanent Court of Arbitration in The Hague and of the ICSID List of Arbitrators and frequently serves as president of international arbitral tribunals.
