Professor Orde Kittrie participated in one of three panels at the March 19 symposium, "Changing Course: The United States' Evolving Approach to International Law," at Tulane University Law School.
Kittrie was a member of the panel, "Weapons Non-Proliferation, Arms Control, and Disarmament." It was hosted by the Tulane Journal of International and Comparative Law, and co-sponsored by the Nonproliferation, Arms Control & Disarmament Interest Group of the American Society of International Law, the Tulane Human Rights Law Society, and the Tulane International Law Society. Papers based on the symposium presentations are to be published in a future issue of the Tulane Journal of International and Comparative Law.
Kittrie is the Director of the Washington, D.C., Legal Externship Program and a Faculty Fellow in the Center for Law, Science & Innovation. His 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 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 ASU law faculty, Kittrie served for 11 years in the U.S. State Department, including as the lead attorney for nuclear affairs.
