Professor Varol presented a talk on stealth authoritarian practices in Turkey at a conference on Transitional Justice and Hybrid Regimes in Turkey and the Middle East, hosted at Cornell Law School.. He argued that the Turkish government has been relying on a set of stealth mechanisms of authoritarian control, which are more difficult to detect and eliminate than traditional mechanisms of authoritarianism. Among his co-panelists was the Hon. Sezgin Tanrikulu, a member of the Turkish Parliament. The event brought together scholars and practitioners from all over the world, including the President of the International Criminal Court, Sang-Hyun Song, who delivered the keynote address.
We’re starting a new series of stories called “GreenLights”, where we will shine a spotlight on some of our amazing students in the environmental and natural resources law program. In our first GreenLight, Victor Reuther (’15) shares some of his background and law school experiences with us. In addition to his role as Editor of Environmental Law, Victor spent a fabulous summer on a Lewis & Clark externship in Delhi, India.
The Lewis & Clark Jessup Team for 2014 - comprised of Shane Barnes, Tristan Parker, Brendan Stabeno, Ali Ward and Spencer Wilson and coached by alum Dagmar Butte - was a semi-finalist in the Mid-Atlantic Regional where 22 teams and over 80 speakers competed for team and individual honors.
“If you think you want to pursue a career in international law after law school then you should definitely consider the Global Law Certificate and make sure to take a wide variety of courses in international law and seek out an international law related externship.”
