Harris Institute launches a new blog: Lex lata, lex ferenda

The Harris Institute is proud to announce that it launched a new international law blog: Lex lata, lex ferenda: The law as it is, the law as it should be. It features commentary on issues of foreign affairs and international and comparative law, and will serve as a resource to Washington University, St. Louis, and the larger regional, national and global community. The inaugural posts highlight issues ranging from the Lubanga case before the International Criminal Court to testimony concerning police violence at the UN Committee Against Torture, stemming from the unrest in Ferguson. Entries will be written primarily by Washington University law professors, students, alumni and staff. If you are interested in contributing to this blog, please contact Harris Institute Fellow, Madaline George at madalinegeorge@wustl.edu. We are also pleased to announce Junko Nozawa as the winner of the blog naming competition. You can visit the blog at law.wustl.edu/harris/lexlata/.
