MBA sponsors “Trends & Issues in Terrorism and the Law”
The Massachusetts Bar Association served as one of the
sponsors for the "Trends and Issues in Terrorism and the
Law" conference, which was presented by the International Law
Students Association at Southern New England School of Law in
Dartmouth, MA. The conference explored both the definitions of
terrorism and armed conflict, as well as immigration,
micro-financing and rule of law initiatives related to developing
better solutions within the law.
MBA President-Elect Denise Squillante offered remarks and
introduced U.S. Sen. Sheldon Whiteshouse of Rhode Island at the
conference's reception at the New Bedford Whaling Museum, which
featured the Sundance Award winning documentary, "The Reckoning,"
about the International Criminal Court.
