Professor Chander Organizes Northern California International Law Scholars Conference
Professor Anupam Chander, together with Professor David Sloss of Santa Clara University Law School, brought together more than two dozen scholars of international law to discuss five draft papers on September 9. The papers discussed a variety of subjects in international and comparative law, including private equity investments in India, the Goldstone Report on Gaza, moral damages in investment arbitrations, the relationship of human rights treaty norms to national practices, and the role of constitutional commitments to international law in human rights treaty ratifications.
The conference was hosted by Professor Saira Mohamed of the UC Berkeley Law School. The annual conference rotates among Bay Area schools, giving international law scholars in the area a chance to read and critique each other's work.
