International Law Workshop

The International Law Workshop hosts prominent practitioners, jurists, policy makers, academics, and government officials to discuss topics that will capture the attention of a general law student audience. It is intended to introduce today's most debated issues in international and comparative law and to provide a forum to discuss critical global challenges as they relate to law and policy. Students, as well as faculty, are welcome. Speakers generally talk for 25 minutes, followed by discussion and questions. The Workshop is coordinated by Assistant Dean for International Affairs Roopal Shah and members of the Law School faculty. It is open to members of the University community.
