Northern California International Law Scholars Workshop

Pacific McGeorge hosted the annual Northern California International Law Scholars Workshop on Friday, Sept. 9, 2011. Law School Professors from Northern California met for the day to give feedback on their peer’s works-in-progress, particularly on international topics. All participants had read papers by authors listed on the program schedule, and after an introductory critique by the commentator, provided suggestions for improving the paper under discussion.
