Guest Blogger: Jenia Iontcheva Turner

It's IntLawGrrls' great pleasure today to welcome as a guest blogger Jenia Iontcheva Turner (right), an Associate Professor at the Dedman School of Law, Southern Methodist University, Dallas, Texas.
Jenia teaches criminal procedure, comparative criminal procedure, international criminal law, and international organizations. Before joining SMU, she served as a Bigelow Fellow at the University of Chicago Law School, teaching legal research and writing and comparative criminal procedure. She earned her J.D. from Yale, where she was a Coker Fellow and articles editor for the Yale Law Journal and the Yale Journal of International Law. After her 1st year of law school, she was a summer clerk at the Appeals Chamber of the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia; the following summer, she worked at the Federal Public Defender’s Office in Houston and the New York and Paris offices of Debevoise & Plimpton.
Jenia's publications concentrate on issues related to comparative and international criminal law and procedure; in that vein is her guest post below, which discusses her study of defense counsel attitudes toward international criminal proceedings. She's currently working on Plea Bargaining Across Borders, a book that explores plea bargaining from a comparative perspective.
Heartfelt welcome!
