The 5th Research Forum provided a wide variety of formal and informal opportunities for discussion and exchange of thoughts. The programme featured two keynote addresses, four semi-plenaries on four dimensions of the theme International Law as a Profession and a large number of panels that were composed on the basis of the responses to the call for papers.

Speakers in the (semi) plenaries included: Samantha Besson, Jochen von Bernstorff, James Crawford, Joan Donoghue, Pierre-Marie Dupuy, Shaheed Fatima, Anne Orford and Andreas Paulus. The programme also featured 15 panels that discussed cutting edge research- as well as practice-oriented topics by both young and more established scholars.
