One of the central features of the LL.M. program is the “High Table” luncheon series, which is held throughout during the academic year. High Table is a luncheon discussion attended by LL.M. faculty and required for LL.M. students, based on presentations by practitioners from the public and private sectors and visiting legal scholars. Some of our recent guests are listed below.
Some of our High Table guests have also been invited to offer Fletcher-wide speeches under the auspices of the distinguished Charles Francis Adams Lecture Series. These have included H.E. Hisashi Owada, then President of the International Court of Justice; Nobel Laureate Dr. Mohamed Elbaradei; andH.E. Joseph Deiss, President of the 65th Session of the U.N. General Assembly.
