– Bring your own questions –
October 27, 2020 Conversation and Cocktails program with Judge T. Michael Peay, a member of the Administrative Tribunal of the Organization of American States (OAS) and former Assistant Legal Adviser at the U.S. Department of State. The discussion with Judge Peay about his lengthy and varied career (moderated by Georgetown Law Prof. David P. Stewart) will include time for questions from the audience. In addition, Judge Peay will provide some solo piano jazz melodies to enjoy with your cocktails.
T. Michael Peay is a (now retired) former Assistant Legal Adviser at the U.S. Department of State, Office of the Legal Adviser (“L”), who enjoyed a long, successful career of government service. During those years, he was privileged to provide critical advice covering a broad spectrum of legal issues with respect to U.S. relations with countries of the Middle East, South Asia, Europe, Latin America, and the Caribbean. He also worked extensively on United Nations matters both in Washington and overseas, where he advised on human rights, humanitarian, cultural heritage law, and other major issues. Judge Peay relentlessly pursued his passion for music, and especially jazz, as an adult and eventually became a competent and respected jazz musician.
Professor Stewart joined the faculty of the Georgetown University Law Center in 2008, following his retirement from the U.S. Department of State’s Office of the Legal Adviser (where he had the pleasure of working closely with Judge Peay). At Georgetown, he co-directs the Global Law Scholars Program and the Center for Transnational Business and the Law and teaches courses in public and private international law, foreign relations law, international immunities, human rights, criminal law and civil litigation. He is Chair of the Board (and past president) of the American Branch of the International Law Association and a member of the Board of Editors of the American Journal of International Law.
