Richard Buxbaum to Receive Riesenfeld Award at Annual Symposium Boalt Professor Richard M. Buxbaum, 2004 recipient of the Riesenfeld award, will present the keynote address at the 2004 Stefan A. Riesenfeld Symposium on Thursday, February 26. Professor Buxbaum’s talk, “States in Transition: How International Law Treats Transfers of Authority,” will draw from Buxbaum’s expertise on post-war Germany and his insights for the current reconstruction of post-war Iraq.
The Riesenfeld award is given annually to an international legal scholar or practitioner who has made an outstanding contribution in the field. Presented by the Berkeley Journal of International Law, the award recognizes Professor Buxbaum for helping to establish UC Berkeley’s Center for German and European Studies and its Center for Western European Studies, as well as his service as editor-in-chief of the American Journal of Comparative Law. He also served as dean of international and area studies at UC Berkeley from 1993 to 1999.
The symposium will take place at 5:15 p.m. in Booth Auditorium and will include an introduction by Professor James Gordley. This event is free and open to the public.
