Staff and students of Lincoln Law School, joined by colleagues from the Universities of Sheffield and Nottingham held the first Law School staff / student international law workshop yesterday.
The workshop focused on the current crises in Syria and Ukraine, and what this told us about the current state of state sovereignty.
Led by Head of School and Professor of International Law, Duncan French and specially invited guest, Dr Russell Buchan, University of Sheffield, a wide-ranging discussion ensued, including contributions from both staff and students.
Finalist Joe Willan also delivered a presentation on cluster munitions with a particular focus on its impact in Laos of which he has significant knowledge and experience.
Professor French remarked: “it has been a great event. We will certainly run it again. I am delighted with the active participation of students, from first years to finalists. It highlights the importance we place on giving our own mean to the University’s wider ethos of student as producer.”
