2017 Annual Course of the International Association of Law Libraries in Atlanta

The International Association of Law Libraries will be holding its 36th Annual Course on International Law and Legal Information in Atlanta, Georgia from October 22 to 26, 2017:
"The theme of this year’s annual course is Civil Rights, Human Rights, and Other Critical Issues in U.S. Law. The birthplace of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Atlanta is internationally known as a major center for the Civil Rights Movement of the 1950s and 1960s. Atlanta is also a hub for the study of international human rights as home to the Carter Center, a non-profit organization established in 1982 as a partnership between Emory University and former President Jimmy Carter. Additionally, this is a crucial time in U.S. politics with the recent change in administration, especially as the changes affect the international community. The annual course will tackle these issues and more, with a special eye toward how libraries and legal information play a role."
Planned sessions include:
  • From AIDS to Zika: Access to Healthcare as a Human Right
  • Black and Blue: Race and Policing after Black Lives Matter
  • U.S. Immigration Policy and Refugee Settlement in Atlanta
  • Information Literacy in a Fake News World
  • Critical Topic: International Terrorism
