British Institute of International and Comparative Law

Outline of the organisation

The British Institute of International and Comparative Law (BIICL) continues a mission first begun in 1895: to advance the understanding of international and comparative law, to promote the rule of law in international affairs, and to promote their application through research, publications and events.

As an independent legal research institute with charitable status, unaffiliated to any university, the BIICL is the only body of its kind in the UK. The BIICL creates a diverse community of scholars and practitioners and serves as an unrivalled focal point for its substantial membership base.

Positions available

The BIICL’s volunteering program is ideally placed for postgraduate law research students and recent LLM graduates who wish to participate in the Research Programme and gain greater insights into the fields of international and comparative law.

Volunteering opportunities are available in:

  • European Private Law and Comparative Law
  • Competition Law
  • Private International Law
  • Public International Law
  • International Economic Law

These opportunities are highly flexible, part-time, and undertaken on a short-term basis to suit the volunteer’s availability.
