Here are the details—looks very useful:

On November 2-3, 2012, the International Humanitarian Law Clinic at Emory University Law School and the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) will convene the next Teaching International Humanitarian Law (IHL) Workshop in Atlanta. The Workshop is targeted at law professors in the United States and Canada interested in teaching an IHL course for the first time (otherwise known as the Law of Armed Conflict), integrating IHL modules into their current courses and/or rethinking their current teaching of this important subject. Topics covered will include: Defining the scope and content of an IHL class; Exploring the intersection between international human rights law, international humanitarian law, and international criminal law; Incorporating IHL modules into the teaching of classes such as public international law, national security law, immigration law, constitutional law, administrative law and more; Identifying strategies for developing curricula, responding to current events, and gaining support from school administrations for the teaching of IHL. The Workshop provides an opportunity for law faculty to think creatively about their teaching of IHL and network with others to support and expand their teaching of the topics. The cost of the two-day seminar is $250 per person and includes breakfast and lunch for both days, dinner Friday night, as well as all materials. Information about the workshop and registration is available at http://www.law.emory.edu/centers-clinics/international-humanitarian-law-clinic/teaching-ihl-workshop.html.
