Charles Jalloh Speaks at the American Society of International Law
On April 5, 2013, Assistant Professor Charles C. Jalloh assessed the African government perspective on universal jurisdiction at the invitation of the American Society of International Law (ASIL). The talk was part of distinguished panel in the 2013 ASIL annual meeting examining national treatment of universal jurisdiction in the United States and other regions of the world. He assessed the African government criticisms of the “abuse” of universal jurisdiction and urged for deeper consideration of the legality, legitimacy and practicality of this most controversial jurisdictional doctrine in international law. The highly selective ASIL conference program committee, which invited Professor Jalloh, convenes the largest conference of international law scholars and practitioners each year.
