Professor Sterio Presents Amicus Brief To Appeals Chamber of The International Criminal Court

Professor Sterio Presents Amicus Brief To Appeals Chamber of The Internatio

CSU C|M|LAW Professor Milena Sterio, along with Case Western Reserve University School of Law Co-Dean Michael Scharf, presented an amicus brief February 14, 2022 before the Appeals Chamber of the International Criminal Court (ICC) in The Hague. The amicus brief deals with the application of the insanity defense in the case of The Prosecutor v. Dominic Ongwen. Professor Sterio and Dean Scharf were the lead authors of the amicus brief, which was submitted to the ICC on behalf of a small group of academics organized by the Public International Law and Policy Group (PILPG), a prominent non-governmental organization.

The defendant in the case, 45-year-old Dominic Ongwen, had been kidnapped by Joseph Koney’s Lord’s Resistance Army in northern Uganda as an eight year old and forced to become a child soldier. Over the years, Ongwen rose through the ranks to become one of the top commanders in the insurgent group at the time of his surrender to the ICC.

National Disability Employment Awareness Month Guest Speaker: Gary Norman '00

In recognition of October as National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM), Cleveland-Marshall College of Law is delighted to have alum Gary Norman (’00) speak on his experience as a lawyer with a disability and challenges that one may encounter. As the legal profession still has a significant underrepresentation of lawyers with disabilities, Mr. Norman has achieved extraordinary success in the legal profession and is a model for the importance of inclusion of people with disabilities in our legal system. It is the hope by sharing his personal experiences, Mr. Norman will help law students with disabilities recognize their value in this field as well as encourage non-disabled students to realize the importance of supporting their fellow colleagues with disabilities as allies which comes by education and awareness. It is further hoped that all members of the law school community will support and encourage members of the community with disabilities in the law school community for the value their gifts, talents, and presence add to diversity within the law school and to the greater society.

Monday Morning Message 8.30.21 You'll Be Known For What You Do, Not Who You

"Be ethical even when you think no one is looking; your word is truly all you have. Good opinion once lost can be difficult to regain. Maintain an unimpeachable reputation for honesty and integrity....Be professional. Law school is not undergraduate college where sins may be easily forgotten. You’ll be known for what you do, not who you say you are. " -U.S. District Judge Benita Y. Pearson '95, Northern District of Ohio, August 2021 Orientation Closing Speaker

Last week marked our return to the law building after nearly eighteen months of remote instruction. In addition to welcoming our returning students back to the building, we welcomed our first-year class for their first full week of classes.
