Announcements: UN Audiovisual Library of International Law; CfP International Law and Human Rights Unit Conference; Seventh Annual Junior Faculty Forum for International Law

1. New Additions to the UN Audiovisual Library of International Law. To commemorate International Human Rights Day and the upcoming 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the Codification Division of the Office of Legal Affairs added a two-part interview with Judge Thomas Buergenthal by Professor Sean Murphy. In this interview, Judge Buergenthal shares some personal moments from his life as well as his extensive experience in international law and, in particular, his invaluable contribution to the development of international human rights law. All interested parties are invited to visit the United Nations Audiovisual Library of International Law to watch the interview, which will not only educate but inspire present and future generations of lawyers around the world.

2. Call for Papers: The International Law and Human Rights Unit Conference.
