Prof. Chin Leng LIM, Choh-Ming Li Professor of Law, spoke at Bentham House, University College London at an event entitled “International Tribunals in Interesting Times: A Fireside Chat with Elias and Lim” on the evening of 28th January 2020.

In 1998, Elias and Lim published The Paradox of Consensualism in International Law. In it, they explored the nature of the international legal order at a time when the arch of history seemed to be inexorably bending towards greater international judicialization. Building on their wealth of experience in academia and the practice of international law in the intervening two decades, Elias and Lim propose to reflect upon the same foundational questions in the opening month of the new decade, at a time that is very different from the 1990s but no less interesting for international courts and tribunals.

On the following evening, he was also invited to speak at an event co-sponsored by, amongst others, the British Institute of International & Comparative Law entitled “Arbitration in Asia: Opportunities and Challenges”. This was held on the premises of the Members of 39 Essex Chambers.
