Promoting the Rule of Law - Discussions Concerning the Crisis in Europe

When Dean Robert G. Storey, the founder of The Center for American and International Law, returned from Europe following his participation as a prosecutor during the Nuremberg Trials, he came home with a vision to establish a legal center though which education would advance the rule of law in the United States and around the world.

As we watch global events surrounding the invasion of Ukraine unfold, we are witnessing once again why promoting the rule of law through education is as relevant and vital now as when CAIL was founded 75 years ago.

In upcoming days, The Center for American and International Law will host a series of online discussions and educational sessions aimed to promote the rule of law by addressing issues highlighted by the current crisis in Eastern Europe. Our topics will include discussions by experts on the enforcement of international norms through legal proceedings, issues relating to the sanctions being deployed by the international community in response to the Russian invasion, and ways in which global energy markets are adjusting to reduce Russia’s leverage as a global hydrocarbon supplier. We expect our invited speakers will share perspectives that range from the latest proceedings at the International Court of Justice at The Hague to lessons that can be learned from the efforts of Dean Storey and his colleagues at Nuremberg, prosecuting those indicted for committing “Crime Against Peace.”

We invite you to join us to explore the issues that continue to be pressing and pertinent worldwide. To sign up to receive more details, please fill out the contact form at
