Dr. Daniel N. Clay, Assistant Professor of Criminal Justice, recently presented a research paper at the Westminster Law School Conference in London, England.
The paper, titled, “Protecting Due Process During Terrorism Adjudications: Redefining ‘Crimes Against Humanity’ and Eliminating the Doctrine of Complimentary Jurisdiction in favor of the International Criminal Court,” used the Boston Marathon bombings as a case study around terrorism and due process. The presentation created a stirring academic debate and received praise from conference attendees from around the world – including representatives of the International Criminal Court.
Dr. Clay’s presentation at the conference, themed around “Righting Wrongs: Enforcing Human Rights, Administering International Criminal Justice,” helped position Elmira College as an institution supporting and engaging in quality international research, including international law.
The University of Arkansas will publish Dr. Clay’s paper in an upcoming edition of the Arkansas Law Review.
