Fordham Law Presents: The Arab Spring: Its Impact on International Politics, Law and International Organizations


The Arab Spring, its impact on international law, international politics and on international organizations, will be the focus of a lecture presented by Dr. Yassin El-Ayouty, Esq., Adjunct Professor of Islamic Law on Tuesday, December 4 at Fordham Law School in New York City.

The Arab spring has been described as the most important event in the 21st century. From Tunisia to Egypt; from Libya to Yemen; and from Bahrain to Syria, the wall of fear by the masses from dictatorships has fallen. Social media has broken the hold of entrenched regimes on the freedom of expression. The quest for dignity, democracy and development has created global kinship across continental divides. The impact of these fast-moving developments is expected to last a long time.

Keynote speaker Dr. Yassin El-Ayouty, Esq., is an Adjunct Professor of Islamic Law at Fordham Law School, a Fellow at the Louis Stein Center for Law and Ethics, and Founder and President of SUNGLOW – Global Training on the Rule of Law.

Registration is required. CLE credit is available for $65/$55 for Fordham Law alumni and public interest attorneys.
