About the CCIL

The Canadian Council on International Law (CCIL) seeks to encourage the study of international law and to broaden relations and dialogues between international lawyers, scholars, individuals and organizations across Canada and around the world. To accomplish these objectives, the CCIL offers scholarships, grants awards, develops strategic partnerships with other organizations, and organizes international law events including our signature Annual Conference.
