British Institute of International and Comparative Law

Cambridge Filmworks have partnered with the British Institute of International and Comparative Law (BIICL) to produce a brand new film showcasing their work as an international centre of legal reserach.

The British Institute of International and Comparative Law (BIICL) provides informed, independent and practical legal ideas for a global community. Its high quality and respected work involves analysis and debate about contemporary issues on every continent, from its base in the heart of London’s energetic and multicultural legal network.

BIICL has been making an influential impact since its foundation in 1958, and it can trace its history even further back to 1894. It is one of the very few independent legal bodies of its type in the world, as it is unaffiliated to any university, is a charity/not-for-profit organisation and is nonpartisan. BIICL includes within it the innovative Bingham Centre for the Rule of Law, which has a particular focus on the many rule of law issues world-wide.

BIICL conducts research around the world across the broad range of public international law, private international law, comparative law and the rule of law. This includes areas such as competition law, European law, human rights law, international investment law, and product liability law. Their research often crosses traditional boundaries of law, so as to integrate private and public international law, and engages with national, European and comparative law.

In addition to high end research BIICL also organise informed and diverse events and discussions, deliver effective and capacity-building training, produce world leading publications and foster a diverse community of scholars and practitioners through its membership offer.
