Please join the University of Denver Sturm College of Law as we gather for the International Law Anniversary Weekend April 13-14, 2012.
This year Denver Law’s own DENVER JOURNAL OF INTERNATIONAL LAW AND POLICY (DJILP) is celebrating its 40th Anniversary. One of the first of its kind, the Journal was forward-looking and unique and has continued on through the years with a tradition of superior and innovative international law scholarship.
