Miami Law and International Graduate Law Programs cordially invite you to attend the International Law Lecture Series talk featuring Samantha Knights.

This system is unfair and completely unworkable in practice and places a disproportionate burden on countries such as Italy and Greece. What is being done in Europe and what could be done?
