Two Thomas Jefferson School of Law professors are speaking at a November 3 panel discussion ”Perspectives: International Law & Security After 9/11.” TJSL faculty members Professor Bill Slomanson and Adjunct Professor Samuel Bettwy are both panelists. The conference is a joint event presented by TJSL and the San Diego Law Library and will be held here at TJSL from 4:30 – 5:30 p.m.
“The recent 10th anniversary of September 11th combined with the trial underway of a Nigerian man accused of trying to bring down a Northwest Airlines Flight on Christmas 2009 only increases the importance of international awareness, cooperation, and collaboration,” according to the Law Library’s official news release.
Professor Slomanson is an authority on international law and is the editor of the American Society of International Law’s section on the United Nations Decade of International Law. Professor Bettwy, an Assistant United States Attorney, is also an expert on international law and has served as a U.S. Army Judge Advocate reservist since 1987, handling a full array of military law issues.
The third panelist is Herman Reddick, a retired Navy Captain and is currently the interim director of San Diego County's Office of Emergency Services.
