Mark Oettinger to Speak at ABA SIL Annual Conference

On Friday, April 12, Attorney Mark Oettinger will be speaking at the American Bar Association Section on International Law Annual Conference. He will be speaking on the World Court of Human Rights Development Project, of which he is the project chair.

From the conference brochure:

“70 years ago, on December 10, 1948, the United Nations adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. At least nine human rights treaties of broad adherence have followed, plus many more at regional levels. However, in the face of persistent widespread violations of human rights, it must be asked: Are the promises of international human rights law being fulfilled? The World Court of Human Rights (WCHR) Development Project has proposed one possible response to the perceived inadequacy of the global human rights system.”
