The Frederick K. Cox International Law Center at Case Western Reserve University School of Law in Cleveland Ohio announced that it will host Geoffrey Robertson, QC, head, Doughty Street Chambers and former Appeals Judge for the Special Court for Sierra Leone in a public lecture on Thursday, November 6, 2008, from 4:30 p.m.- 5:30 p.m. at the School of Law Moot Courtroom at Case Western, 11075 East Boulevard, Cleveland, Ohio 44106.
Judge Robertson, who is one of my all-time favorite authors in the field of human rights, will map the future of the fast-growing field of human rights law. Drawing on 30 years of experience as a human rights lawyer in Australia and the UK, and as Appeals judge on the Special Court for Sierra Leone, he will trace recent jurisprudence at the national, regional, and international level. He will also discuss strategies for litigating human rights cases against corporations and former foreign government officials, obstacles that stand in the way of success, and future trends.
