The American Society of International Law has included a news item about C|M|LAW Professor Milena Sterio and her Fulbright experience in Baku, Azerbaijan,  on its front page:  http://www.asil.org/

In addition, Professor Sterio attended the United Nations Contact Group on Piracy off the Coast of Somalia, Working Group 2, meeting on April 10-11 in Copenhagen, Denmark.  At that conference, she presented on the existence in national legislation on the crime of conspiracy to commit piracy, and on the legal duties of a ship master after he/she detains pirates.  C|M|LAW 3L students  Aleksandar Rakic and Marina Saric provided research assistance on these two topics.

Finally, Professor Sterio has published a Report from the Piracy Contact Group as a blog post Intlawgrrls.org.  The post has been picked up by several other blogs, including Communis Hostis Omnium (piracy-law.com), and the Maritime Security Review.
