In News & Notes on October 3, 2013 at 2:39 pm

Schmid Law Library’s second year of S.T.I.R Talks kicked off on September 19th. Based on the concept of TED talks, S.T.I.R. provides faculty members with a  casual setting in which to share their research with students in a 15 minute presentation in the Student Lounge.

Professor Brian Lepard presented: “Humanitarian Intervention in Syria: Is it Legal under International Law?”  In his talk, Professor Lepard examined the history of military intervention to protect human rights victims, drawing on the case studies from his book, “Rethinking Humanitarian Intervention.” In light of this history, he reviewed arguments for and against the legality under international law of unilateral air strikes by the U.S. against Syria in response to its recent use of chemical weapons  against its own civilian population.

The next S.T.I.R. talk is scheduled for Thursday, October 24th. Last year’s S.T.I.R. Talks are also available on YouTube.
