On May 12, the International Law Society and Professor Aswad hosted Steve Mathias for lunch. He is the United Nations’ Assistant Secretary General for Legal Affairs. Prior to joining the United Nations, Mathias gained over 20 years of experience in international law at the State Department, serving as the head of the Department’s legal sections for United Nations Affairs, Political & Military Affairs, and Legislation & Management. Mathias spoke about how the United Nations Legal Office works, some of the hot issues it has faced recently, and gave advice on international law careers. The International Law Society Secretary, Kate Caudill, remarked: “It's always great to have such prominent leaders come speak to us on such a personal level. Hearing Mr. Mathias's viewpoints on world issues and how to pursue a career in global affairs is an incredible opportunity for OU students." Incoming 1Ls, current OU students, and recent JD and LLM graduates were among those participating in the lunch discussion.
