As part of the Center for International Legal Education's celebration of its 20th anniversary, Pitt Law faculty and their colleagues from across the globe will gather on Friday, September 11, 2015, to discuss a variety of subjects in international law, including Islamic law, international commercial law, and international human rights. (A full list of panel topics and speakers is available here.)
These panels will be preceded by the keynote address for the 20th anniversary celebration, delivered by Jeffrey Kovar, the assistant legal adviser for Western Hemisphere Affairs at the U.S. State Department, who will discuss his involvement in the recent reopening of diplomatic relations with Cuba and the prospects for closer ties between the U.S. and Cuba.
