“The Syria Conflict’s Impact on International Law”

The School of Law will host an online roundtable discussion titled “The Syria Conflict’s Impact on International Law Tuesday, May 19, from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. 

Based on their new book published last month by Cambridge University Press, CWRU Law School Dean Michael Scharf, Public International Law & Policy Group President Paul Williams, and Cleveland Marshall College of Law Professor Milena Sterio will discuss how the Syria Conflict has changed international law. Moderated by Kevin Nealer, a principal in the Scowcroft Group, the panel will examine the effect of the Syrian conflict on U.S. immigration law and policy, the global effort to prosecute Syrian perpetrators of atrocities, the legality of use of force against ISIS in Syria, and whether the U.S. attacks on the Syrian chemical weapons facilities have changed the law of humanitarian intervention.
