The Sixth Committee: Legal
Topic 1: The Scope & Application of Universal Jurisdiction
Topic 2: Defining Legal Standards for International Intervention & Peacekeeping
When you take a quick look at the many states that join together to form the Legal Committee, it is evident that not a single system unites them all. While our legislation may vary greatly from place to place, there will always remain the question of if these laws are what is truly best for the world at large. Delegates of the General Assembly will be asked to take a unique look at some of the world’s most pressing issues and make a series of recommendations for ideal approaches for us all to follow. While these questions may have several correct answers, it is only through practice that we can truly know what final decisions reign supreme.
