The Asian Academy of International Law Limited (“the Academy”) is an independent and non-profit-making body set up in Hong Kong with a view to further the studies, research and development of international law in Asia. Albeit its relatively young history, the Academy has already organised a good variety of events, all of which have been very well received by local and overseas legal and business sectors as well as government and academic bodies. Amongst all events of the Academy, the most significant one is the annual Colloquium on International Law.
