The UW Law School Global Legal Studies Center, the UW-Madison Center for World Affairs and the Global Economy, and the International Practice Section of the State Bar are co-sponsoring three workshops on Current Issues in International Law: Implications for Wisconsin
The workshops are free for attorneys, policy makers, state agency personnel, civil society groups, students and others interested in global legal issues. Continuing legal education credits are pending.
Description of the workshops:
Due to globalization, international society is rapidly shrinking with the line between international law and national law becoming increasingly blurred. Given the increasing importance of international law and how close it has become to our day to day lives, we are organizing a series of workshops on the following topics:
February 18: Innovation: Role of the University, Industry and Intellectual Property Law
March 22: Beyond Copenhagen: Climate Change and Wisconsin
April 15: Legal Aspects of Doing Business in India
