The North Carolina Journal of International Law and Commercial Regulation at UNC School of Law invites you to attend their annual symposium on Friday, January 31 at the Friday Center in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. In order to encourage a broader discourse on international law, NCILJ hosts an annual symposium, which highlights a topic of growing importance in the field of international law. This year’s symposium will focus on the emerging issues in the law of armed conflict and international security.
With the help of leading experts in the field, we will examine how developments in modern warfare and security practices interact with and challenge the limits of the law. Panels will address such issues as cyber warfare and terrorist prosecution while individual speakers will discuss the future of the law of armed conflict and a return to the war/crime paradigm after 12 years of war.
5 hours of North Carolina CLE Credit will be available for attending attorneys.
