Members, for those of you who attended David Akerson’s program on the International Tribunals, see the message below from David to Judge Gerdes regarding an upcoming FREE CLE program on the topic, along with the graphic below describing the program:
Dear I addressed the Inn of Court a while back on the International Tribunals. I wanted to let you know about an upcoming event that will be discussing similar issues. On April 2nd at 4:30 at Anderson Academic Commons (main DU library), our speaker is going to be Fergal Gaynor, the victims’ representative at the Int’l Criminal Court in the case against sitting president of Kenya. In an innovation at the international tribunals, he is appointed to represent the 20,000 victims and appears as a party independent of the prosecutor and defense attorney in the proceedings. He will be talking about this new kind of trial counsel, and the differences in the representation and participation of victims at the Rwanda Tribunal versus this new model at the ICC.
