Visiting scholar and international law expert Farooq Hassan will discuss "American Power: A Critique" at an area focus lecture Thursday, Dec. 4, at 1 p.m. in 238 Herald R. Clark Building at Brigham Young University.

"We anticipate that Dr. Hassan's brief visit will afford the university community an opportunity to become better acquainted with his research and experience, particularly in the area of international law and foreign affairs," said Cory Leonard, Kennedy Center assistant director.

He was educated in law (Oxford, Cambridge, Lincoln's Inn London, Columbia, Harvard), in comparative systems and conflicts of laws (Columbia, Hague Academy), international and strategic affairs (Harvard), human rights (Harvard, International Institute of Human Rights: France), and humanitarian law and laws of war (Henry Dunant Institut: Geneva, Humanitarian Law Institute: San Remo, Italy).

Hassan has been a tenured professor of law and has taught at different leading universities and international centers such as Oxford, London, Columbia, Tufts and Fletcher.

He has authored more than 25 books, including the Concept of State and Law in Islam and Legal Systems of the Islamic Countries, and over one hundred articles, primarily in professional journals.
