Join us for an end-of-the-year event to discuss the international rule of law.

Monica Hakimi teaches and writes in the fields of public international law and U.S. foreign relations law at the University of Michigan Law School. Her research ties together doctrine and theory to examine how international law operates and adapts to contemporary challenges, particularly in the areas of human and national security. Her recent paper on ’The Work of International Law’ gives a nice overview of her approach to thinking about the place of law in global order.

Jean D’Aspremont is the chair in public law at the University of Manchester and Professor of International Law at Sciences Po in Paris. In May 2019 he will be a FIG visiting faculty member at Northwestern. His recent work on international legal theory and history includes the book International Law as a Belief System and the Oxford Handbook on the Sources of International Law (with Samantha Besson).
