THE LEONARD v.B. SUTTON COLLOQUIUM IN INTERNATIONAL LAW
The Leonard v.B. Sutton Colloquium in International Law was named for a former Chief Justice of the Colorado Supreme Court who was a close friend and longtime supporter of the International Legal Studies Program (ILSP).
Held annually since 1967, the Colloquium unites students, faculty and members of Denver’s legal community. Well-known authorities and foreign dignitaries present lectures and panel discussions on current international issues. The resulting papers are then collected into a special issue of the Denver Journal of International Law and Policy. As is the case with most of the ILSP’s programming, student members of the International Law Society and Denver Journal of International Law and Policy collaborate with staff of the ILSP and the Ved Nanda Center for International and Comparative Law to coordinate all aspects of the program—from speaker invitations to publication of the papers.
