Diane Marie Amann, the Woodruff Chair in International Law at the University of Georgia, spoke today at The John Marshall Law School in Chicago on the topic of international criminal law. She compared judgements from various criminal trials focusing on the different verdicts, opinions, and evidentiary standards. The program was well attended, particularly considering that Chicago is being hit right now by a major snow storm.
Diane Marie Amann teaches Public International Law, International Criminal Law and the Laws of War at the University of Georgia. She also serves as the International Criminal Court Prosecutor’s Special Adviser on Children in Armed Conflict. The author of more than four dozen publications in English, French and Italian, Amann focuses her scholarship on the ways that national, regional and international legal regimes interact as they endeavor to combat atrocity and cross-border crime. She joined the Georgia Law faculty in 2011 from the University of California-Davis, where she was a professor of law, the founding director of the California International Law Center and a Martin Luther King Jr. Hall Research Scholar, and from which she received the Distinguished Teaching Award and the Homer Angelo Award for Outstanding Contributions to International Law. She has also served as a visiting professor at the University of California-Berkeley, at the University of California-Los Angeles and at the Irish Centre for Human Rights at the National University of Ireland-Galway, and as a professeur invitée at the Université de Paris 1 (Panthéon-Sorbonne).
In 2010, Professor Amann received the prestigious Mayre Rasmussen Award for the Advancement of Women in International Law, an award presented by the American Bar Association Section of International Law. She also previously chaired the Association of American Law Schools Section on International Law.
