Women in International Law Network: The Olive Schill Society

At a time where there are continuing efforts to promote the place of women working in international law, such as the recently launched global campaign for gender parity in international representation, MILC is proud to launch the Women in International Law Network: The Olive Schill Society (WILNET).

Women in International Law Network dove with olive branch

Founded by female researchers of MILC, this new platform aims to provide a professional community for women international lawyers at any stage of their career to discuss both their experiences in- and pathways into- the field.

We are a growing community of women from all walks of international law life – from academia, international organisations, non-governmental organisations, independent consultancy, private practice, governments, or education.

WILNET’s activities will include networking events and web-based content, such as interactive video interviews with women international lawyers, providing rich and varied perspectives on how to enter and progress in the profession.
