Yale’s Harold Koh argues at the International Court of Justice on behalf of Ukraine


Sterling Professor of International Law Harold Hongju Koh is among the lawyers representing Ukraine at the International Court of Justice in the Hague this month asking the court to declare Russia in violation of two international treaties. Koh, a former U.S. State Department Legal Adviser and Assistant Secretary of State for Human Rights, presented two opening speeches and the closing argument on behalf of Ukraine in three argument sessions that spanned nearly two weeks. Koh is pictured above (at center, with yellow tie) with the Ukrainian delegation (U.N. Photo/ICJ-CIJ/Wiebe Kiestra courtesy of the ICJ).
