The Leonard v.B. Sutton Colloquium in International Law (The Sutton Colloquium) 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.

The Ved Nanda Center for International & Comparative Law was established in 2006 thanks to the vision and generosity of Douglas Scrivner and other donors. The mission of the Nanda Center is supported by the strength and talent of the Nanda Center Board, the Sturm College of Law, and its dedicated donors.

The Nanda Center is part of the International Legal Studies Program at the University of Denver Sturm College of Law and supports its curriculum and academic mission.
