Rwanda Twenty Years Ago Today: Fergal Gaynor’s Presentation Video

April 28, 2014

This presentation was the fifth event in a series commemorating the 20th anniversary of the Rwanda genocide. The genocide began on April 6th, 1994, and 2014 marks 20 years since that tragedy. In the intervening 20 years, the United Nations tribunal indicted 90 planners and organizers of the genocide. Suffice it to say, a lot has been learned these past 20 years both in terms of international atrocity prosecutions and in terms of restorative justice. One lesson learned was that victims might be better served by having separate representation in the proceedings, apart from the Prosecution and Defense attorneys. The International Criminal Court is employing a model that does just that: victims are represented in the proceedings in by a victims’ representative. This presentation was by Fergal Gaynor, the victims’ representative in the Kenya election violence case at the ICC. Mr. Gaynor represents some 20,000 victims in the prosecution of the current President of Kenya, Uhuru Kenyatta. Mr. Gaynor discussed the advantages and disadvantages of this model and how he expects to interact with the trial when it begins in the Autumn of 2014. Watch it here.

DU Law Competes in Pace Environmental Tourney

March 24, 2014

NELMCC/ Pace 2014
Article for Advocacy Department Website


On February 20-21 2014, DU Law students competed at the National Environmental Law Moot Court Competition hosted by Pace University School of Law in White Plains, New York. The team was composed of third-year law students Laurie Strong (a black belt in kung fu) and S*tefanie Arndt* (a U.S. Marine), and second-year student Alexandra Hall (a chemical engineer). Coached by Professor Kelly Davis (fellow at DU’s Environmental Law Clinic), the team members were the top performers at the DU Environmental Law Moot Court Competition held in September 2013, earning the highest scores based on a brief and oral arguments.

The team continued DU’s long tradition of competing in the annual competition, which this year drew nearly 80 teams from law schools around the country. The team represented three fictional parties in a Clean Water Act case, which required them to prepare arguments for each party on issues ranging from the scope of the Act’s citizen-suit provision to the determination of point sources and navigable waters. The team prepared a brief with no outside help in November 2013, and represented all three parties in oral arguments at the competition. They demonstrated a commitment to teamwork as well as superb knowledge of environmental law and appellate procedure at the competition.

“I really enjoyed the experience of representing DU at NELMCC. Working with Prof. Davis, Stefanie, and Laurie was educational and fun,” said team member Alex Hall. Ms. Hall looks forward to participating in DU’s competition next year and hopes to compete at NELMCC again in 2015.
