University of Nottingham alumnus wins Francis Lieber Prize

University of Nottingham logoDr James Green, former PhD candidate at the University of Nottingham School of Law, has been awarded the prestigious Francis Lieber Prize for his book The International Court of Justice and Self-Defence in International Law (Oxford, Hart Publishing, 2009).

The prize is awarded annually by the American Society of International Law's Lieber Society on the Law of Armed Conflict to the author of an exceptional work in the field.

Former PhD co-supervisor Dino Kritsiotis said 'This is excellent news. Green's work offers an excellent synthesis of the jurisprudential construction of the right of self-defence by the International Court of Justice: lucidly and vividly written, the work does tremendous justice to Green's empirical research for his doctorate... and to the powers of analysis he brings to the material he has uncovered'.

James obtained his doctorate from the University of Nottingham in 2007 under the supervision of Professor Robert McCorquodale and Dino Kritsiotis. He has published in both the UK and the USA in the field of public international law and is currently Lecturer and LLM Programmes Director at the University of Reading.
