Law Professor Selected to Speak in Haiti

Denise Pilie was invited by the Dean of the Université d’Etat d’Haiti, Faculté de Droit et des Sciences Economiques (the state law school in Haiti) to speak at the 150th anniversary celebration of the law school. The celebration was to be held in Port-au-Prince Haiti, beginning on Tuesday, January 12, the date of the earthquake. For personal and professional reasons, Prof. Pilie had cancelled her participation in the celebration in late December, and was not present for the tragedy.
