Rothenberg to moderate panels at judicial, state bar conferences
, Executive Director of the College of Law’s Center for Law and Global Affairs, will
moderate panels at the Arizona Judicial Conference and at the State Bar of Arizona's annual convention, on Friday, June 22.
The panel at the judicial conference is entitled, "Judicial Independence and the Rule of Law: International Lessons from Yesterday, Local Implications for Tomorrow." Among the panelists is the Hon. Medhat al-Mahmoud, Chief Justice of Iraq and President of the Iraqi Higher Judicial Council.
The chief justice also will participate on the bar convention panel, which is called, "Rule of Law Reform in a World of Conflict." The panel will explore the role of law in the reconstruction of Iraq, following decades of brutal authoritarian rule, and Kosovo, after years of devastating conflict. A goal is to learn how experiences of other countries help us understand legal challenges within our own communities.
