Dr. Lawrence Siry, Lecturer at the University College Cork (Ireland) and former researcher at the University of Luxembourg, was visiting the Faculty of Law and Political Science of NUOL (Vientiane) from the 5th to the 9th of November. Dr. Siry came in the framework of the Inter-University Cooperation Project Laos-Luxembourg to give a week-long training for students to prepare them for the national round of the ICRC IHL Moot Court Competition.
As part of his visit, he also kindly agreed to give a special open lecture at the faculty as part of our collaboration with ILSTA on “Structure and actors on international criminal law” on the 7th of November. The lecture introduced the participants to International criminal law and to the role and jurisdiction of the International Criminal Court. It took place at the FLP’s lecture room and was attended by more than 100 students and teachers of the faculty. Many questions were raised by the participants showing how fascinating International criminal law can be!
