WILNET had the pleasure to interview Mary Footer from the University of Nottingham. Professor Footer is the co-director of the Nottingham International Law and Security Centre (NILSC) and mainly works in the field of international economic law.

Professor Footer shared with us, among many other topics, her views on the challenges that international economic law is expected to face in the next couple of years and the most far-reaching implications for the future of International Investment Law regime. She also talked about the challenges that women lawyers have to face in the academia especially in the field of international economic law where they are considerably underrepresented compared to men.
