Rule of Law Forum (Lead)


RuleOfLawPlease join us as we confer the IBA Rule of Law Forum and LexisNexis Lifetime Achievement Award to one of the most important legal figures of our century, Benjamin Ferencz.

At the age of 103, Mr. Ferencz, who is now the last living prosecutor of the Nuremberg Trials, remains one of the most influential voices in the field of global justice and the rule of law. In light of the recent Russian invasion of Ukraine, many have asked whether the world is living through a second Nuremberg moment.

This session provides a once in a lifetime opportunity to ask one of last living witnesses of that crucial time in history his views about the implications of the current moment for the international legal order, and where we should go from here.

Please note that the awardee will join via zoom.
