The ILA congratulates its Portuguese branch for the organisation of a successful regional conference in Lisbon. Between the opening address by the Under-Secretary General for Legal Affairs and Legal Counsel of the United Nations, Dr Miguel Serpa Soares and the closing address by Professor Miguel Poiares Maduro, Minister for Regional Development of Portugal, the participants discussed papers on the role of, interaction between and challenges to international courts and tribunals. Presentations were made by many well-known judges, practitioners and scholars but also well over 20 young practitioners and scholars were given the opportunity to present their views and opinions. The papers will be published in due course. The conference was also the practical inauguration of the ILA scholarship fund that enabled eight young international graduate law students to attend this conference.
