Judgment of Nuremberg in Today’s World

Soon after graduating from Yale Law School, King served as a prosecutor at the Nuremberg war crimes trials, where he was assigned to the trials of the German General Staff and the High Command. In conversation with College of Law professor David Crane and moderated by Greg Peterson, Chairman of the Robert H. Jackson Center in Jamestown, King will share his insights about this historic tribunal that defined a method for adjudicating acts of genocide and crimes against humanity. During his long and distinguished career, King served as a corporate counsel for TRW Inc. Today, he remains active in the legal field as a professor of international arbitration at Case Western Reserve University and as U.S. director of the Canada-U.S. Law Institute.  This event is co-sponsored by the Syracuse Symposium in cooperation with the College of Law and Hillel.
