The Case Western Reserve University School of Law has entered into exchange agreements with law schools at Fudan University and East China University of Political Science and Law (ECUPL), both in Shanghai, and Southwest University of Political Science and Law (SUPSL) in Chongqing for student and faculty exchanges. The three law schools are among the best in China.
Professor Michael P. Scharf headed a delegation at the International Criminal Court First Review Conference in Uganda, where the 111 participating states added the crime of aggression to the Court’s jurisdiction—an historic moment that will make a significant contribution to world peace.
The Henry T. King, Jr. War Crimes Research Office has added the Kenya Piracy Court to its client list. Law students are preparing research memoranda for the Kenyan court on such issues as the definition of piracy, the rights of accused pirates and the legitimacy of the court.
Beginning in fall 2011, the School of Law will offer a new LLM program in International Criminal Law.
International criminal law has become one of the fastest growing and highest profile areas of law. Taught by leading experts in the field, the Case Western Reserve University LLM in International Criminal law will provide individuals who hold a degree in law with an in-depth knowledge of international criminal law and procedure, international humanitarian law, and national security law, and will equip them to practice international criminal law before international tribunals or national courts.
Adjusting to life in the US can be lonely and challenging for international students. The International Friendship Family Program works with CWRU alumni living in the Cleveland area to help international students with the transition into a new country and culture. The program matches over 30 international students each fall with a local family where they enjoy an occasional home-cooked meal, learn about American holidays, and visit Cleveland’s cultural and entertainment attractions. The most likely students to sign up for the program are those who are in the US for the first time as well as newly enrolled graduate students who do not have the benefit of living with American students in the university resident halls. The benefits are equally shared as Friendship Family members learn about different cultures, languages, cuisines, and more.
