Nuremberg and the Modern Laws of War
|Date||Thu, May 6, 7:00pm - 8:30pm|
NUREMBERG AND THE MODERN LAWS OF WAR
The modern laws of war were developed in reaction to war crimes committed by the Nazi regime. Those atrocities, among others against civilians, were brought to the world’s attention at the International Military Tribunal (IMT) in Nuremberg, which occurred 75 years ago. John Geiringer, a partner at Barack Ferrazzano law firm and a Co-Director of the Consortium for the Research and Study of Holocaust and the Law (CRSHL) at the Chicago-Kent College of Law’s Center for National Security and Human Rights Law, will place the IMT in historical context and discuss how it led to the laws of armed conflict that we have today.
This webinar is free and open to the public but registration is required.
