The Indian Society of International Law (ISIL) was founded in 1959 at the initiative of Shri V. K. Krishna Menon and was inaugurated in the same year by Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, the first Prime Minister of independent India, with the objective to "foster nation-wide the study and development of International Law and to encourage the comparative study of the application of International Law in other States". The ISIL has been publishing the Indian Journal of International Law since its inception, which has attained a high standard and is held in high esteem the world over.

The ISIL has an outstanding library on international law, which is used by scholars from all over India. It organizes annual conferences and seminars on international issues of contemporary interest. ISIL conducts and promotes independent research on issues of International Law. The teaching wing of the ISIL i.e. the Indian Academy of International Law & Diplomacy runs post-graduate diploma courses in various branches of international law.
