Sydney Law School supported a postgraduate student, Joanna Obbink, to present a paper which was selected for inclusion at an international law conference held in New York State on 27-28 March 2009.

The Inter-University Graduate Conference, hosted by Cornell University, brought together post graduate students from 12 universities to present papers on an array of subjects including international trade, commercial law, human rights, and law and development.

Joanna's paper, written after field research conducted last year, discusses the difficulties in prosecuting sexual violence in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
