The Snyder Lectures are held in memory of Dr. Earl Snyder, a 1947 Indiana University law graduate, and form a special partnership between the University of Cambridge and the Indiana University Maurer School of Law.

The annual lectures are held alternately in Cambridge and Bloomington and are subsequently published in the Indiana Journal of Global Legal Studies (IJGLS).

Past speakers include Sir Elihu Lauterpacht, Professor Alfred Aman, Professor James Crawford and Professor Jost Delbrück. A related Snyder Scholarship programme also operates.

Where available, audio and video files of these annual lectures are accessible below or in Media/Audio recordings.
