  • When It Can't Happen Here: Genocide in an Age of Nationalism

    For anyone who remembers the nationalist-driven violence of the 20th century and fears its return, this resurgence of global nationalism in the 21st century creates concern. Without scrutiny and attention, the harmful developments transpiring in our midst may once again lead to mass atrocities and genocide. Understanding the connections between nationalism and genocide is fundamental to our prevention of such harms.

    The Center for the Study of Law and Genocide at Loyola Law School invites you to join us on campus on February 28, 2020 our spring symposium, titled "When It Can't Happen Here: Genocide in the Age of Nationalism." The symposium will facilitate an interdisciplinary discussion with two panels and a keynote speaker, to explore the connections between nationalism and extreme violence, as well as how to prevent it.

  • Save the Date: March 13, 2020 - The Challenge of the Creation of a Global Regulatory Regime for Human Germline Genome Modification: A symposium of the International and Comparative Law Review of Loyola Law School, Los Angeles

    The discovery and development of the CRISPR/Cas9 family of genome editing tools is a milestone in science and human history whose implications have not yet been fully grasped by the public and policy makers. The advent of the CRISPR era brought with it the promise of finally ridding humanity of hundreds of serious genetic diseases that condemn millions around the globe. However, when these tools are used to modify the genome of human germline cells (eggs and sperm), changes are potentially inheritable and spreadable through the population, raising numerous concerns. This symposium aims to contribute to the ongoing conversation on the global governance of germline engineering by bringing together at Loyola Law School, Los Angeles, legal scholars, policy-makers and scientist. It will also be the occasion to launch the book Boggio A./Romano C./Almqvist J. (eds.), Human Germline Genome Modification and the Right to Science: A Comparative Study of National Laws and Polic ies, Cambridge University Press, 2019 (ISBN: 9781108499873).
