2011 is shaping up to be one of the most turbulent years in history. This timely symposium is designed to examine both the application of international law in times of crisis and whether these events are pushing international law itself to the brink of crisis, with panels examining developments in Northern Africa and the Middle East, climate change, international economic law, universal jurisdiction, piracy, and the war on terrorism. The symposium features an address by the Hon. Richard Goldstone, was Justice of the South African Constitutional Court and Chief Prosecutor of the International Criminal Tribunals for the former Yugoslavia and Rwanda.

Case Western Reserve Journal of International Law, one of the oldest and most prestigious international law journals in the world, will publish a special symposium double issue with the articles generated by the symposium (Volume 44, Issue 1 & 2, due out in Spring 2012).

Additional Information
Free and open to the public. Registration required by September 2, 2011.
7.0 hours continuing legal education credit available, pending approval, for a $200 fee.

At one-hour CLE activities, Ohio Supreme Court regulations require attorneys to be present for the entire hour to obtain credit. Therefore, registration for one-hour lectures will close at the time the event is scheduled to start. Everyone is welcome to attend the lecture, but we cannot submit CLE credit for late arrivals.

At events longer than one hour, we will submit credit based on an attorney’s arrival time and duration of attendance, but no less than the minimum of one full hour of attendance.

We encourage attendees to arrive at registration 20 minutes prior to the start of a lecture to sign in, obtain materials, and be seated.
