On January 25, 2023, the Armenian Bar Association, The Brandeis Association, and the Hellenic Lawyers Association jointly hosted a program in New York City where the leaders of bench and bar convened to remember, reflect and commemorate the memories of victims of Armenian Genocide, Greek Genocide, and Jewish Holocaust.

Robert H. Tembeckjian, the Administrator and Counsel of the NYS Commission on Judicial Conduct, delivered very moving keynote remarks seen below, which was also published by New York Law Journal here.

Nuné Melik, an internationally acclaimed violinist, performed Armenian, Greek, and Jewish music for the guests. Jonathan Levin photographically documented the event. For the photographs, click here.

Domenick Napoletano, the President Elect of NYS Bar Association, said “I will never forget what Tembeckjian shared with us today. Those memories are not the past; they are our present. We must never forget!”

2024 International Law Symposium: Call for Papers

The humanitarian crisis for the ethnic Armenian community of Nagorno-Karabakh (Artsakh) [as a result of Azerbaijan’s complete military encirclement, months-long blockade, and, ultimately, the entire Armenian population’s forced migration out of Nagorno-Karabakh] raise oft-ignored questions about the universality and effectiveness of non-derogable international human rights norms. This Call for Papers seeks submissions of abstracts for papers exploring the relationship between human rights and unrecognized or partially recognized States (viz, countries), particularly in connection with the live issues in Nagorno-Karabakh.
