The McGill International Law Society and Criminal Law McGill student clubs are organizing a panel to discuss the Rohingya refugee crisis and the related genocide case currently at the International Court of Justice.

With professors Payam Akhavan and Frédéric Mégret acting as moderators, we hope to invite members of McGill Law community, as well as members of the broader McGill and Montreal communities, who are interested in international criminal law to discuss the contemporary topic.

This event will offer students an opportunity to learn more about the case and international criminal law more generally, as well as highlight the expertise relating to international law and human rights that exists within our Faculty.
