Law Students Assist in Formation of Cambodia Tribunal

Five Virginia Law students advised the United Nations on establishing a Cambodian tribunal to bring to justice the leaders of the Khmer Rouge regime, which was responsible for the mass killing of an estimated 1.5 million Cambodian citizens in the 1970s. Under the supervision of visiting law professor Linda Malone, the students researched confidential questions related to the procedural and structural aspects of the tribunal and reported their conclusions to a U.N. representative.
