Does the World Need More Crimes Against Humanity Legislation?

Join us for a celebration of the launch of the Clinic’s new report, Comparative Law Study and Analyses of National Legislation Relating to Crimes Against Humanity and Extraterritorial Jurisdiction. The report will be presented by its co-authors, Professor Arturo Carrillo, and former clinic staff attorney, Annalise Nelson.

Commentators on the report will include GW Law Professors Sean Murphy and Mike Matheson, discussing related topics such as the International Law Commission’s on-going work around an international CAH convention, and a perspective on the challenges to codifying crimes against humanity in the United States.

Associate Dean for International and Comparative Legal Studies, Susan L. Karamanian, will moderate this event.

The event will be followed by a reception in the Kelly Lounge.

Location: The Jacob Burns Moot Court Room (L101), 2000 H St. NW, Washington D.C. 20052

Date and time: Wednesday, October 9 from 4:00 – 6:00 p.m.
