Judgement at Nuremberg: Reflections after 75 Years
|Date||Wed, Oct 6, 5:00pm - 6:00pm|
Before the Nuremberg War Crimes Trials there were a long series of treaties, agreements and assurances that attempted to limit the evil done in times of war and even to reduce or eliminate threat of war itself.
By trying and punishing those Nazi leaders who ignored those pacts, Nuremberg and its subsequent trials and the agreements that followed created precedents by which the nations of the world can hold states and statesmen accountable for aggressive war, war crimes, and crimes against humanity.
Join Chicago-Kent College of Law panelists as they discuss the way the original trial created a set of international standards that held leaders accountable for aggression and breaking the laws of war and created the concept of crimes against humanity. They will follow those themes to analyze how those standards have been applied and continue being applied today.
