The purpose of the International Legal Theory Interest Group is to give members an opportunity to exchange and develop ideas on theoretical issues in the fields of international law and international relations, and to stimulate a discussion of these issues within the legal academic community, with scholars from non-legal disciplines, among policymakers, and among members of the general public. Consultation among members of the group is encouraged through the holding of an annual International Legal Theory Symposium that brings together scholars, policymakers, legal practitioners, and interested members of the public. One or two members typically take the lead in organizing each symposium, and in turn working with presenters to produce high-quality academic papers and editing these papers for inclusion in the ASIL Studies in International Legal Theory book series. The Interest Group sponsors this book series in collaboration with Cambridge University Press. The group also regularly sponsors panels at the ASIL Annual Meeting, and seeks to engage scholars from other disciplines in discussions and debates concerning international legal theory.
