upcoming events – IHL at Berkeley (April 9-10)

February 25, 2010

* West Coast International Humanitarian Law Teaching Workshop, sponsored by the ICRC and Berkeley Law (April 9-10, at Berkeley)

For those who are interested in developing an IHL course, or refining one they already teach, this is going to be a terrific event. Indeed, it should be really interesting even if one does not plan to teach an IHL-oriented course (note that one session talks about ways to integrate IHL into other courses). See the attached flyer and agenda for details.

[Note that this is a different event from the upcoming “national security law scholarly workshop/IHL training” event taking place in Austin on April 1st and 2nd. Details as to the Austin event will circulate later today.]
