The Arab Spring and the Future of U.S. Diplomacy: In consultation and coordination with his family, UC Hastings College of the Law will host a Symposium on November 8 to honor the memory of the late Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens. The Symposium is free and open to the public.

The Symposium will address issues related to Ambassador Stevens’s career of public service. There will be academic panels on constitutional transitions in the Arab World and the responsibility to protect under international law, as well as a panel of ambassadors discussing people-to-people diplomacy. Following this program, there will be an opportunity for friends and family to remember Ambassador Stevens. Please click here for a schedule of events and list of speakers.

"Gathering experts to discuss law and foreign policy as it relates to actual legal practice in the promotion of global understanding presents a fitting opportunity to further the legacy of Chris's style of diplomacy and his life's work," said Tom Stevens, Ambassador Stevens's brother. "Chris loved his UC Hastings years, and he maintained his strong connection to the school throughout his life. His friends from that time have become my family's friends. It's really significant to all of us that we're carrying on this relationship with UC Hastings, and we are grateful to the school for holding this event."

"The Ambassador was performing the highest role that a lawyer is called upon to perform, public service," said UC Hastings Chancellor & Dean Frank H. Wu. "He and I communicated when he was appointed Ambassador. He had been looking forward to sharing his experiences with students when he returned."
