UCLA's JILFA hosts an annual symposium addressing pressing issues in international law. This year, the focus is the so-called BRICS countries: Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa. The BRICS are contributing to significant changes in the world's economic alignment, but each country also deals with several human rights issues. JILFA has invited leading academics and practitioners to speak about racial discrimination in Brazil, freedom of speech and expression in Russia, violence against women in India, minority rights in China, and LGBT rights in South Africa.
UCLA School of Law is a State Bar of California approved MCLE provider. This activity qualifies for 6.25 hours of general MCLE credit.
