Professor Aswad Participates in U.S. State Department’s Advisory Committee on International Law

December 18, 2015 | By Mackenzie Dilbeck, Director of Communications

On December 10, Professor Evelyn Aswad participated in the State Department’s Advisory Committee on International Law, which is composed of former legal advisers to various Secretaries of State as well as international law professors and practitioners. The discussion focused on issues related to cross-border electronic data access, the development of non-legally binding international norms, and issues relating to the law of war. Professor Aswad shared her views on the intersection of these topics with the emerging area of international business and human rights. 

In the past, she has invited OU Law students who have externships in Washington D.C. to attend this meeting (See June 2014 Blog Post). She has also brought students from OU to Washington D.C. for the meeting (See December 2014 Blog Post). Unfortunately, the meeting occurred during finals this year, but the next meeting will be in June 2016. 

“If any OU Law students will be in Washington D.C. next June and would like to attend this meeting, please reach out to me and I will facilitate your attendance,” said Professor Aswad.
