International tribunals

Drawing on our in-depth experience and expertise in public international law, Landmark’s members regularly act in disputes before international courts, tribunals and committees regarding the proper interpretation of treaties and/or general principles of international law. Examples include:

  • Regularly acting before the UNECE Aarhus Convention Compliance Committee in Geneva. Landmark Members have appeared in this forum for individuals bringing communications against States Parties, for the UK Government responding to communications, and for interested parties affected by communications.
