"We are very excited to have Mr. Vashadze speak to our students about this timely and global topic," said Toni M. Fine, Assistant Dean for International and Non-J.D. Programs. "Georgia's relations with its neighbors are not limited by geography. They affect every nation on the global stage, so it is important for today's legal professionals to understand the discrete perspectives of international relations."

During his visit to the Law School, Vashadze met with Interim Dean Michael M. Martin and Associate Deans Sheila Foster and Nicola Lee.

Vashadze was introduced at the event by Alexander Lomaia, Georgia's Ambassador to the United Nations.
