Prior to 1944, the crime of genocide lacked a name and legal repercussions. Our partners from Facing History and Ourselves will explore the conditions that drove a lawyer named Raphael Lemkin to create a term for this horrific crime, and how to guide our students to use it with care while acknowledging our obligations towards those victimized by a range of human rights violations.

Participants will receive 1 CTLE hour.
