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.
