(Go On! is an occasional item on symposia and other events of interest)
"The Global Impact and Implementation of Human Rights Norms" is the theme of a symposium to be held March 11 & 12, 2011, at the University of the Pacific McGeorge School of Law in Sacramento, California.
To be discussed is the growing incorporation of human rights norms "into the development of substantive law in fields as diverse as labor law, intellectual property, and armed conflict."
Among the Pacific McGeorge faculty who will moderate is IntLawGrrls guest/alumna Linda Carter.
Panelists will include Dinah Shelton, Vice President of the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights; Justice Richard Goldstone, who's visiting this semester at Stanford Law School; Judge Fausto Pocar of the International Criminal Tribunals for the former Yugoslavia and Rwanda; and law professors Svitlana Kravchenko (University of Oregon), Kristen Jakobsen Osenga (University of Richmond), Adrienne Stone (University of Melbourne), Kristen Boon (Seton Hall), and Sabine Schlemmer-Schulte (Pacific McGeorge).
