April 07, 2013

University of Windsor Professor of Law Christopher Waters will lead a discussion about the modern day relevancy of the law of armed conflict at 12:15 p.m. April 10 at Wayne State University Law School. The event is free and open to the public.

The international law of armed conflict and its shortcomings in protecting civilians and reducing suffering will be the focus of the discussion. Waters will speak to the question of whether international legal structures on the conduct of hostilities remain relevant under the technological and geopolitical conditions of the current era.

A Professor of Law at the University of Windsor, Waters served as associate dean from 2009-12. He previously taught at the University of Reading in the United Kingdom. Waters has extensive field experience in the Caucasus and Balkans, including with the UN/OSCE’s Kosovo Mission. On several occasions, he has monitored elections in Eastern Europe.

The event, presented by Wayne Law’s Program for International Legal Studies, will take place in the Spencer M. Partrich Auditorium at the Law School.  Parking is available for $6 in Structure One on Palmer Street across from the Law School.
