The Legitimacy and Role of International Law and Jurisprudence in National Courts: A Perspective from the Nepal Supreme Court

The MultiRights project has the pleasure to announce the visit of Justice Khalyan Shrestha from the Supreme Court of Nepal. A talk with Justice Shrestha will be held on Thursday 16, at the Norwegian Centre for Human Rights.

Justice Shrestha is the leading light on the Nepali Supreme Court, writing many of the groundbreaking judgments that show a deep awareness of comparative and international law. Also, he has been at the forefront of battles over judicial independence, drafted an entirely new criminal code for the State and set up an office to enforce judgments.
