To honor the 20th anniversary of the establishment of the Center for International and Comparative Law (CICL), the University of Baltimore School of Law, in conjunction with PluriCourts, will bring together renowned scholars for a symposium on legitimacy and international courts.
PluriCourts Annual Conference this year will be on the theme of international courts and the rule of law.
The establishment of International Criminal Tribunals, and hybrid or internationalized tribunals has been hailed as a great achievement within international law. Legal scholars cite the substantial normative evolution within the field as proof of the value of these institutions. Nevertheless, there is a need for multi-disciplinary evaluation to assess legitimacy and effectiveness of these tribunals.
