The Students for the Promotion of International Law (SPIL) at Government Law College, Mumbai, presents the 6th Government Law College International Law Summit. SPIL has endeavoured for the past six years to promote the nuanced but important discipline of international law among the students and legal fraternity alike through its flagship event, the International Law Summit. The Summit is a three day event which comprises of interactive sessions, seminars, discussions, a Judgment Deliberation Competition and Treaty Appreciation Competition. This year, the Summit is being held with the World Trade Organization (WTO) as its supporting organisation, ensuring interaction of attendees of the Summit with the representatives of the WTO via Web conference. The Summit is scheduled to to be held January 30 - February 1, 2015, with the theme "International Economic Law and Policy." International economic law and policy deals with achieving development goals through trade, investment and economic legal policies, and striking a balance between liberalization and capitalism on one hand, and sustainable development on the other. Hence it becomes important to harmonize strategies between developed and developing countries, to combat issues like unemployment, inflation, environmental degradation etc. while ensuring that the world economy moves forward. SPIL Mumbai aims to engage in this discourse and deliberate on various topics under the ambit of the complex weave of international economic law.
