Professor Orde Kittrie spoke on a panel, "International Law and the Proliferation Threats from North Korea, Iran, Syria and Terrorist Groups," at a Feb. 25 conference at Fordham University School of Law.

"Nuclear Weapons and International Law: A Nuclear Nonproliferation Regime for the 21st Century" was presented by the Fordham International Law Journal and the Nonproliferation, Arms Control & Disarmament Interest Group of the American Society of International Law. Papers based on the conference presentations will be published in a future issue of the Journal.

His teaching and research focus on international law, especially nonproliferation and sanctions, and criminal law. Kittrie has testified on nonproliferation issues before both the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives and recently served as one of 12 members of a special Congressionally-created committee to make recommendations on how to better prevent the proliferation of nuclear, chemical and biological weapons. Prior to joining the ASU law faculty, Kittrie served for 11 years in the U.S. State Department, including as the lead attorney for nuclear affairs.
