Three Bond Law students will head to Istanbul, Turkey to attend the International Law Students’ Association (ILSA) Summer Conference from 7-10 July, 2010.
Students Sharon An, Amy Cook and Kenneth Yam were chosen to represent Bond University and the Committee of Australasian Law Students (CALS) at the annual event. This year’s conference will be hosted by Bahçesehir University’s Faculty of Law, where delegates will meet to discuss human rights and global peace issues within the framework of the United Nations. The conference will attract law students from 50 countries around the world giving them the opportunity to create global connections with academics and professionals, whilst presenting their knowledge in an international field. Students will engage in seminars that cover a range of topics including The United Nations and the Future of Human Rights and also hear presentations from selected students.
This year, Bond University’s own Kenneth Yam was one of the lucky few selected to present his international law paper on The United Nations Security Council’s Role in the 21st Century. “I feel very honoured about being selected to present and hope to do Bond University and Australia proud,” said Mr Yam.
During the conference students are also given the opportunity to participate in an authentic simulation of the United Nations. This unique experience involves a Security Council, General Assembly, a wide range of sub-committees, and a Secretariat headed by the Secretary General. In their individual committees, students engage in debate on a wide range of topics, prepare draft resolutions, and conduct negotiations to resolve problems that affect countries all over the world.
We wish our students luck at this thought-provoking event.
