ATLANTA (AP) - The chief prosecutor for the International Criminal Court is set to give a lecture at Emory University’s law school.

The school says Fatou Bensouda is set to deliver the annual David J. Bederman lecture on April 9. Her talk will be titled “Fostering the Promise of the Rome Statute: A Prosecutor’s Perspective.”

The Rome Statute established the International Criminal Court in 1998.

Bensouda was born in the Gambia and has been the lead prosecutor of the International Criminal Court since June 2012. She had previously served as deputy prosecutor in charge of the prosecutions division of the court since 2004.

A Q&A; session and reception will follow the lecture. The event is free and open to the public, but attendees must register online.
