The Essex Public International Law lecture series is founded, hosted and co-chaired by Dr Meagan Wong and Dr Emily Jones based in the School of Law. The series prides itself on building upon two important intellectual traditions of international law: formalism and international legal practice, and international legal theory including postcolonial and feminist perspectives.
We welcome all students, academics, practitioners and legal advisors to join us.
Dr Meagan Wong is a generalist public international lawyer. She has advised States on a broad set of issues of public international law, including the law of treaties, jurisdiction, international institutional law, and the relationship between international law and national law, and has particular expertise regarding the crime of aggression.
Dr Emily Jones is an international lawyer whose interdisciplinary work combines theory and practice. Her current work focuses on: gender and international law; international environmental law; imperialism, political economy and international law; and science, technology and international law.
