Webinar on U.S. Government Sanctions Against the ICC

I am posting information about an exciting webinar that will take place this Wednesday, Jan. 27th, at noon EST, on the topic of “Sanctions Against the International Criminal Court: Constitutional and International Law Issues.”  The webinar will feature Prof. Gregory Magarian, Washington University School of Law, as moderator, and Prof. Leila Sadat, Washington University School of Law, Prof. Gabor Rona, Cardozo Law School, Stephen Rapp, former Ambassador-at-Large, Office of Global Criminal Justice, Scarlet Kim, ACLU, and Prof. Milena Sterio, Cleveland-Marshall College of Law as speakers.  Panelists will address the ongoing litigation against the U.S. government – two lawsuits are now pending, one in New York and one in California – challenging the legality of the underlying Executive Order (through which the sanctions regime was established) on constitutional law grounds (Professors Rona and Sterio are co-plaintiffs in the New York lawsuit, and Prof. Sadat and the ACLU are co-plaintiffs in the California lawsuit). The panel is co-sponsored by the AALS National Security Law Section, the ABILA ICC Committee, and the ASIL International Courts and Tribunals Interest Group.
