Georgia Law Prof Amann among scholars at Temple Law roundtable on new international criminal law book

University of Georgia Law Professor Diane Marie Amann was one of a dozen scholars from the United States, Canada, and Italy who took part in a book roundtable Friday at Temple University Beasley School of Law in Philadelphia.

Organized by Temple Law Professor Margaret M. deGuzman, the roundtable focused on Justice in Extreme Cases: Criminal Law Theory Meets International Criminal Law, a forthcoming Cambridge University Press volume by Professor Darryl Robinson of Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario.

Scholars touched on issues including both the interrelation of international criminal law with other fields of law and the methodologies of interpreting international criminal law – and how these considerations affected doctrines like mens rea and command responsibility. Contributions to the roundtable are due to be published in a future issue of Temple’s international law journal.

Professor Amann is the Emily & Ernest Woodruff Chair in International Law and a Faculty Co-Director of the Dean Rusk International Law Center here at Georgia Law. Her prior work on command responsibility includes writings here and here.
