ATHENS, Ga. (AP) -- A University of Georgia law professor has been appointed a special adviser to the International Criminal Court.

UGA says court prosecutor Fatou Bensouda has named Diane Marie Amann her special adviser on children in and affected by armed conflict. Amann will support and advice the prosecutor's office on policies, training and awareness in that area. Amann is one of three new special advisers appointed.

Amann joined the faculty at the UGA School of Law in 2011 and teaches public international law, international criminal law and the laws of war. She came to UGA from the University of California, Davis, where she was a professor, the founding director of the California International Law Center and a Martin Luther King Jr. Hall Research Scholar.
