Cleveland to Washington

Kudos to our colleague Sarah H. Cleveland (right), just named Counselor on International Law with the U.S. State Department's Office of the Legal Adviser, headed by our colleague Harold Hongju Koh.
As Counselor, she will give advice on international law issues and help develop U.S. positions in litigation involving international and foreign relations law issues, including human rights cases in U.S. courts.
Since 2007 Sarah's been the Louis Henkin Professor of Human and Constitutional Rights and Co-Director of the Human Rights Institute at Columbia Law School, and also has taught at Michigan and Harvard law schools and at Oxford University. A former law clerk to the late U.S. Supreme Court Justice Harry Blackmun, she was among many scholars who, as posted, signed a December 2008 statement respecting detention policy -- intended for the new administration that she now joins.
Heartfelt congratulations!
