Bangor University Honorary Fellow delivers master classes in International Law
Bangor University Honorary Fellow, Professor Malcolm Evans OBE, Professor of International Law at Bristol University, visited Bangor on 19 and 20 March 2013. On both days, Professor Evans taught undergraduates in the final year compulsory module on International Law. Professor Evans, who is a renowned international lawyer and also the Chair of the United Nations Sub-Committee on the Prevention of Torture, taught students about the prohibition of torture in International Law, and the international system for the protection of human rights.
Professor Evans, who is an advisor to the Bangor Centre for International Law at the Law School, also participated in a high level discussion on ‘An International Rule of Law’ chaired by the Centre Director and Chair of International Law, Professor Suzannah Linton, on 20 March 2013. Along with Professor William A. Schabas and the Right Reverend Andrew John, Bishop of Bangor, the panel engaged in a wide range of fascinating discussions under the broad umbrella of an ‘International Rule of Law’.
Professor Suzannah Linton noted how important engagement with world leaders such as Professor Evans is for the teaching and study of International Law. “We are striving to broaden and enrich the understanding of our students in global affairs, and to create a hub of excellence in International Law here at Bangor. The support of Professor Evans and other advisors and friends of the Bangor Centre for International Law has been instrumental in this endeavour.”
