The 2018 International Law Conference (the 1st I-NLAC)

About the 1st iNLAC

In conjunction with the 50th anniversary of the Faculty of Law, Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM), the faculty jointly collaborates with Asian International Arbitration Centre (AIAC), Fakultas Hukum of Airlangga University, Indonesia and Western Sydney University, Australia to organise the International Law Conference 2018 in September this year. The conference welcomes all as it provides an international forum for all to share experiences, knowledge and innovation, encourage the flourishing of intellectual development and provide opportunities for networking and collaboration in a multi-disciplinary platform. This event also aspires to provide enriching opportunities that transcend the needs and demands of the last century to face our complex and challenging technology-impacted world. Abstracts should focus on the theme of the conference: ‘Law, Technology and the Imperative of Change in the 21st Century’. This conference focuses on interactive and adaptive research across all domains with the law as its embryo.
