“Talk by Harold Koh”
Please join the Carr Center for Human Rights Policy for a talk by Harold Koh, who served as the 22nd Legal Adviser of the U.S. Department of State. Harold was Assistant Secretary for DRL in the Clinton Administration and, on leaving that office, was the Dean of the Yale School of Law until he took up the post as Legal Counsel. Professor Koh is one of the country’s leading experts in public and private international law, national security law, and human rights. He departed as the State Department’s legal adviser in January 2013 and returned to Yale as a law professor, being named a Sterling Professor of International Law. This talk is part of a series co-sponsored by the Human Rights Program, “The Obama Human Rights Policy: The Unfinished Agenda.”
