Friday, November 4, 2016

Friday Center, Chapel Hill, NC

The North Carolina Journal of International Law at UNC School of Law invites you to attend its annual symposium on Friday, November 4, at the Friday Center in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. In order to encourage a broad discourse on international law and draw attention to current issues, NCILJ hosts an annual symposium on a topic of growing importance in the field of international law. This year’s symposium is titled “Cyberwarfare and International Law” and will focus on how the international laws regarding war translate in the cyber arena. We have authors focusing on the intersection of the private sectors concerns and nation sovereignty, the overall change of the cyberthreat over the last few years, how we deal with the perpetrators of these crimes, and more.
