Fall 2010 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. The Workshop is coordinated by Assistant Dean Virginia Gordan.  It is open to all members of the University community.

The Workshop meets on Mondays from 4:00 to 5:15 p.m. in Hutchins Hall, Room 138, unless otherwise noted.
