April 06, 2018 09:00 America/Los_Angeles


Golden Gate University, School of Law - 536 Mission Street, San Francisco, CA 94105


The GGU Annual Fulbright meeting was inaugurated twenty-eight years ago at GGU under the auspices of the Center for Advanced International Legal Studies which was re-named in 2007 in honor of its first Director, Distinguished Dean Emeritus, Professor Dr. Sompong Sucharutkul. The Symposium offers an amazing opportunity to discuss an array of cutting-edge issues that touch on every aspect of international law.

The symposium will focus on international law in operation, how and by whom international law is made, shaped, and carried out, both formally and informally; how it is taught and should be taught; how the practices of international institutions, law firms, companies, not-for-profit organizations, government offices, and militaries generate international rules; how and in what ways states and other actors interact; and how participants deploy international legal arguments. The meeting will consider how international legal practice has changed and is continuing to change in response to geopolitical shifts and contemporary challenges, including demands for greater transparency, accountability, legitimacy, and inclusion.
