The Duke Law Journal and Duke Law School welcome accomplished international law scholars Ryan Goodman and Derek Jinks on Thursday, Nov. 18, 2004 to deliver the annual Duke Law Journal Fall Lecture. The lecture will be based on their article entitled "How to Influence States: Socialization and International Human Rights Law," soon to be published in the Duke Law Journal. The lecture, which is free and open to the public, will begin at 12:15 p.m. in Room 3037 of the Law School. A live web cast will be available, and a reception will follow on the Fourth Floor Loggia.
Professors Goodman and Jinks recently presented their article at the Stanford/Yale Junior Faculty Forum, at which Yale Law School Dean Harold Koh and Columbia Law Professor Jose Alvarez each presented responses that will also appear in the upcoming DLJ issue containing the article.
