About the Roundtable
The Law Roundtable (formerly Dialogs) is an historic gathering of current and former international war crimes tribunal prosecutors, renowned academics, and legal experts, who are invited to speak on current issues centered on a theme. This year’s Roundtable returns to Chautauqua, New York, to continue the tradition started over a decade ago. Since the first IHL Dialogs in August 2007, the conference continues to reach a wider audience allowing for meaningful discussions concerning contemporary international criminal law. After 12 years of successful Dialogs, we are revamping the format; this year marks the inaugural Roundtable, chaired by Prosecutor Brenda J. Hollis. While we will continue to host speakers for keynote addresses, the primary focus is on the breakout sessions, which will create the Chautauqua Principles issued at the Roundtable's conclusion.
