The Santa Clara Journal of International Law and the Center for Global Law and Policy cordially invite students, faculty, practitioners, and members of the international legal and business communities to our sixth annual International Law Symposium. The topic this year is Global Justice for Women: Advancing Equality. The event will focus on critical issues currently affecting international law and social justice on a global scale.

The symposium will host panel discussions on topics such as human trafficking and immigration, economic equality, and women as agents of change. Panelists include professors, authors, and leaders from around the world with advanced work in the subjects. The Journal is honored to welcome Dr. Musimbi Kanoyoro, President and CEO of Global Fund for Women, as our keynote speaker.
