International Law Weekend-West

BYU Law is hosting the International Law Weekend West Conference this Friday, January 29, 2016. The conference theme is “International Law in a Divided World.”

“International law plays an expanding role in law and politics.  This conference will provide students an opportunity to learn about current issues in international law, including the European migration crisis, cybersecurity, corruption, disasters, and international business,” said BYU Law Professor David Moore. “The conference will also feature panels on careers in international law for students considering a future in public or private international law.”

BYU Law faculty will be joined by conference participants from across the country representing law schools, including Georgetown University Law Center, Texas A&M University School of Law, and The Wharton School. In addition, representatives from the U.S. Air Force, FBI, private law firms, and business corporations will speak in panel discussions, round tables, and two key note addresses.
