Last spring, former Guatemalan dictator Efraín Ríos Montt was convicted of genocide and crimes against humanity. The three justices who delivered that globally significant verdict will discuss the Guatemalan justice system, the structure of the courts, and their involvement in judging crimes against humanity. 

Yassmin Barrios, Patricia Bustamante, and Pablo Xitumul are the Guatemalan judges who presided during the Ríos Montt trial.

Co-sponsored by the Center for Latin American Studies and the Berkeley Law School.
