International Law Colloquium Series

International Law Colloquium Series

 
     
For more than a decade, the International Law Colloquium Series has brought leading scholars to the School of Law, where they have presented works in progress and invited discussion and comments from students as well as faculty discussants. Past presenters have come from throughout the United States and as far as Galway, Geneva, London, Montreal, Rome and Toronto to explore an array of legal topics: foreign direct investment, refugees, international arbitration, discrimination, climate change, crimes against humanity, international tribunals, state sovereignty, human rights, treaty interpretation, democracy-building, counterterrorism and the laws of war, and global governance.
 
Led by Harlan G. Cohen, the Gabriel M. Wilner/UGA Foundation Professor in International Law, and supported by the Dean Rusk International Law Center, the Spring 2020 International Law Colloquium is a three-credit course consisting of presentations of substantial works-in-progress on a variety of international law topics by prominent scholars from other law schools. As has been the case since the series began in 2006, students will read and write reaction papers on the scholars’ manuscripts, and then discuss the papers with the authors in class. Other School of Law and university faculty often join in these dialogues.
