Athens, Ga. – The University of Georgia School of Law’s Dean Rusk Center will present “Security and Justice: An Indian Perspective” featuring the Chief Justice of India K.G. Balakrishnan, the Indian Minister for Law and Justice M. Veerappa Moily and the Attorney General for India G.E. Vahanvati. The conference will take place April 2 at 2 p.m. in the Larry Walker Room of Dean Rusk Hall, located on North Campus. The event is free and open to the public.

A total of 15 delegates from India — including senior academic and judicial officials — will participate in the symposium, which will explore security and justice in the post-Sept. 11 era.

“We are thrilled to be hosting the top legal and judicial officials from India, the largest democracy in the world,” Rusk Center Director C. Donald Johnson said. “Given the importance of both national and international security, particularly in the post-9/11 era, we are pleased to provide a forum for this valuable exchange of ideas.”

The Indian delegation will also meet with leaders from the Rusk Center during their visit to campus to discuss prospective student and faculty exchanges as well as collaborative education, research and outreach programs.
