'what is a fair trial?' class exercise assignments

In the class exercise on Tuesday, 28 October 2014, we will look at how the various international & hybrid criminal courts (ICC, UNMICT, ICTY, ICTR, SCSL, STL, ECCC, SPSC-ET, IMT, & IMTFE) deal with the rights of the accused to a fair trial. Before class, students will read the Lawyer's Committee report then research & study their assigned court to see how it handles these rights. In class, we will discuss each right and how the various courts do (or do not) support it. The assignments are:

Abdulla Almulla: Human Rights Commission within the Constitutional Court of Bosnia & Herzegovina
Kelly Ayers: UN Mission in Kosovo (UNMIK) Human Rights Advisory Panel
Sulafah Bamuhayr: Supreme Iraqi Criminal Tribunal
Angela Chen: Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia
Tiffany Davidson: The International Criminal Tribunals (ICTY, ICTR, UNMICT)
Ravneet Deol: Special Panels for Serious Crimes in East Timor
Susana Diaz Garcia: Special Court for Sierra Leone
Kyrsten Melander: Special Tribunal for Lebanon
Natalia Ramirez: International Criminal Court
Morgane Zander: International Military Tribunal (Nuremberg) & the Nuremberg Military Tribunals

I will handle the International Military Tribunal for the Far East.
