AALL is pleased to assist in promoting this international symposium on behalf of the sponsors. We believe this is an outstanding opportunity for law librarians, not only as attendees, but also in helping to make the larger legal community aware of this important event:
The Library of Congress and NYU School of Law are co-sponsors of an International Symposium: DEMOCRACY AND THE RULE OF LAW IN A CHANGING WORLD ORDER.
March 7-10, 2000. This event is free and open to the public.
Judges, legislators, legal scholars, and experts in various fields from 21 countries will analyze democracy and the rule of law as regards:
- the state and human rights;
- corporate power and the global economy;
- national sovereignty;
- the roles of women;
- responsible and fair use of natural resources;
- religion and governance;
- and multi-ethnic and multi-racial states.
