OU Law Professor and Student Attend U.S. State Department's Advisory Committee on International Law Meeting

On June 20, Professor Evelyn Aswad and rising 3L Stacey Lehne attended the State Department's Advisory Committee on International Law (ACIL) meeting in Washington, DC.   "I enjoyed listening to the exchange of ideas concerning the situation in the Ukraine and the closing of Guantanamo," Lehne said.  ACIL is comprised of all former Legal Advisers of the Department of State and other individuals appointed by the Department.  Through the Committee, the Department of State obtains the views and advice of a cross section of the country's legal profession on significant issues of international law.  The June meeting focused on, among other things, the situation in the Ukraine, the work being done to close the Guantanamo Bay detention facilities, and a recent Supreme Court decision involving international law.  Professor Aswad was appointed as a member of ACIL in 2013.    "It was a really interesting discussion and so nice to catch up with a student from my Fall International Law course at the meeting!" commented Professor Aswad.
