To quote the blurb:
“Judge Teresa Doherty, a native of Coleraine, has had a long and distinguished domestic and international legal career which has led her to her current position as the only serving female judge from Great Britain and Ireland appointed by the Secretary General of the UN to an International Criminal Court, that of the Special Court for Sierra Leone. Appointed to Trial Chamber II in 2005, she is presently a judge in the trial Prosecutor v Charles Taylor that currently sits in the Hague. In this role she has delivered numerous landmark rulings, particularly in relation to forced marriage, sexual slavery and ‘child soldiers’. To mark the beginning of her tenure as Visiting Professor at the Law School, Judge Doherty will deliver a lecture setting in context the importance of the Special Court for Sierra Leone in the framework of developing International Criminal Law.”
