Guest Lecture on Defences in International Criminal Law
On Monday 20th March Dr Noelle Higgins, Senior Lecturer in Law, NUI Maynooth, delivered a guest lecture entitled “Defences in International Criminal Law” to our LL.M./M.A. Human Rights in Criminal Justice masters students. Dr Higgins gave an excellent lecture on the legal framework for defences in the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court, which included a discussion on the emerging cultural defences and culturally motivated crimes. Students benefited enormously from the exchange of ideas and gained valuable insights on the grounds for excluding criminal liability under international criminal law.
