Rothenberg to moderate panels at judicial, state bar conferences

June 18, 2012

Daniel Rothenberg, executive director of the College of Law's Center for Law and Global Affairs, will moderate panels titled, "Rule of Law Reform in a World of Conflict," at two events, June 22.

The panels are scheduled for the Arizona Judicial Conference in Tucson and the State Bar of Arizona’s annual convention in Phoenix. The Hon. Medhat al-Mahmoud, Chief Justice of Iraq and President of the Iraqi Higher Judicial Council, will speak on both panels.

The panel will explore the role of law in the reconstruction of Iraq, following decades of brutal authoritarian rule, and Kosovo, following years of devastating conflict. A goal is to learn how experiences of other countries help us understand legal challenges within our own communities.
