California International Law Center
CILC recently launched its
inaugural report, "Toward
Peace with Justice in Darfur:
A Framework for Accountability."
Like the state whose name it shares, the University of California, Davis, School of Law has a tradition of engagement in matters of global consequence. Continuing that tradition is the California International Law Center at King Hall. CILC (pronounced "silk") fosters the work of faculty, students, and alumni in international, comparative, and transnational law, and in so doing CILC enhances California's role as a global actor.
CILC's Director, Fellow, and Faculty Council publish on topics as varied as cross-border crime and comparative civil rights, food security and global finance, international trade and immigration detention. They give expert advice and take part in conferences on many continents. And they prepare students for careers in our 21st century world.
Affiliates of CILC include law school clinicals in which students learn the practice of promoting human rights; foreign exchanges and LL.Ms; and student-run organizations, publications, and moot courts.
CILC is honored by its Partnerships with the American Society of International Law and other organizations committed to promoting the rule of law across the globe. The Center's Darfur Project works with the Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice & Human Rights to build a framework for peace and reconciliation in that wartorn region of Sudan.
CILC's Global Council comprises recognized experts in international, comparative, and transnational law and policy who collaborate with the CILC Director, Fellow, and Faculty Council.
Inspiring us is the law school's namesake, Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., the 1964 Nobel Peace Prizewinner who seven years earlier had posed this question:
As we move to make justice a reality on the international scale, as we move to make justice a reality in this nation, how will the struggle be waged?
Through this Center our King Hall community continues to work for justice, at home and abroad.
