Virtual Date with History - Nuremberg and the Modern Laws of War
On Thursday May 6, Barack Ferrazzano Financial Institutions Group partner and Regulatory Section Leader John M. Geiringer joined The First Division Museum at Cantigny Park to discuss the Nuremberg trials and their ongoing importance.
The modern laws of war were developed in reaction to war crimes committed by the Nazi regime. Those atrocities, among others against civilians, were brought to the world’s attention at the International Military Tribunal (IMT) in Nuremberg, which occurred 75 years ago. John Geiringer, a partner at Barack Ferrazzano law firm and a Co-Director of the Consortium for the Research and Study of Holocaust and the Law (CRSHL) at the Chicago-Kent College of Law’s Center for National Security and Human Rights Law, placed the IMT in historical context and discussed how it led to the laws of armed conflict that we have today.
