Kittrie speaks at University of Georgia Law School

November 23, 2010

Professor Orde Kittrie was a panelist on the topic, “Emerging Nuclear Threats: Evaluating the Effectiveness of Various Sanctions and Monitoring Regimes,” at the University of Georgia School of Law on Nov. 12 in Athens, Georgia. 

The panel was part of a symposium titled “Fallout: The Future of Nuclear Security and Non-Proliferation." The symposium was sponsored by the Dean Rusk Center, the University of Georgia School of Law, and the Georgia Journal of International and Comparative Law, which plans to publish articles based on the symposium proceedings.  

Other panelists included Dave Jonas, General Counsel, National Nuclear Security Agency; Charles Allen, Deputy General Counsel for International Affairs, U.S. Department of Defense; and Larry Johnson, former United Nations Assistant Secretary General for Legal Affairs.

Kittrie’s 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 law faculty, Kittrie served for 11 years in the U.S. State Department, including as lead attorney for nuclear affairs.
