Civil Justice Program Symposium: Injury as Cultural Practice

 September 5 & 6, 2014

The symposium will address some of the most difficult and important debates over injuries now taking place in societies around the world.  Issues will include the question of defining when an injury has occurred, the normalization and inequitable infliction of injuries, and the paradoxical degradation of victims through legal actions meant to compensate them for their injuries."

Strategic Litigation in the International Human Rights System: Why, How, and with What Results?

Friday, October 17, 2014
3:30 to 7:00 p.m.
Loyola Law School-Robinson Courtroom

The Loyola of Los Angeles International and Comparative Law Review cordially invites you to the Fall 2014 Symposium entitled Strategic Litigation in the International Human Rights System: Why, How, and with What Results? It will take place on Loyola Law School’s campus in downtown Los Angeles, on the afternoon of Friday, October 17, 2014.

The Symposium features four distinguished speakers actively engaged in litigation before the Inter-American human rights system and moderated by Cesare Romano, Professor of Law and the W. Joseph Ford Fellow at Loyola Law School. Over an afternoon, the speakers will explore the increasing use by an expanding number of non-governmental organizations and law school clinics of the Inter-American system of protection of human rights, and share their first-hand experiences.

On the occasion of the Symposium, the Loyola of Los Angeles International and Comparative Law Review will also launch a new website. The website is the result of a multi-year long-term research project led by Professor Romano and run by a selected group of students of the International Law Review. It features a comprehensive collection of concise but detailed summaries in English of all cases decided by the Inter-American Court of Human Rights; a searchable database of comprehensively coded decisions; and country profiles that help the users put the various decisions in their wider context. It is the only website of this kind, and it aims to become a one-stop source for essential information about the Inter-American Court for scholars (legal and political scientists), as well as practitioners all around the world.

After the speaking portion of the event, a small reception will be held on campus serving hors d’oeuvres, beer, and wine for an opportunity to continue the discussion.

We hope that you will be able to attend and contribute your voice to this unique event. 

 

Attendance is free, but registration is required. More information coming soon.
