The University of La Verne College of Law held a "wildly successful" international law symposium last week in California. The symposium focused on developing and enhancing rule of law protocols in post-conflict states. More than 40 military officials, government leaders and academic scholars attending the conference began collaborating to provide a set of detailed principles that governments can use to identify and prioritize essential, post-conflict actions. Also attending the symposium were LL.M. candidates from Afghanistan (studying through the Afghanistan Legal Educators Project), who spoke to the legal challenges influencing current policy-making and the rule of law in Afghanistan.
