CPE/CPD CREDITS

2 Hours Professionalism EDI Accredited!

This Hot Docs for Continuing Professional Education accredited screening and discussion for lawyers and business professionals will explore how the Nazi philosophy of law emanating from racial ideology perverted Germany’s legal system, to discriminate against, ostracize, dehumanize, and eventually eliminate targeted classes of people. The program will feature the Hot Docs film Prosecuting Evil: The Extraordinary World of Ben Ferencz as a case study. It will be followed by a panel discussion featuring leading experts and scholars who will provide their view on lessons that can be drawn from history to address some of the challenges of our time such as the rise of populism, anti-Semitism, and racism in the Canadian society and around the world. The panel will also discuss the role of international in bringing perpetrators to justice and how the international community can promote human rights and prevent history to repeat itself.
