Experts at Law: Comparative Law, International Trade, Private International Law & Theories, Methodologies, and Perspectives



(One in a series on Experts at Law)

This final installment in the Experts at Law series focuses on comparative law, international trade law, and private international law as well as theories of, methodologies for, and perspectives on international law. We've posted previously on experts on war and conflict, including international criminal law, international humanitarian law, national security law, terrorism, and transitional justice, and posted last week on international human rights law, including the domestic implementation of international law, international environmental law, international migration, and women's rights. We will continue to update the rosters of experts on these topics, and would be pleased to add more fields if other experts would like to join the list.
Organized by field of expertise, this series of posts aims to provide easily accessible information to conference organizers, media, and others who seek expert opinions on a variety of subjects while ensuring gender balance. The list below provides institutional affiliations for as well as links to the bios and publications of and blog posts by or about our Experts at Law, who are comprised of IntLawGrrls bloggers, guests, and alumnae and presented in alphabetical order. Some offer specific areas of expertise within the broader topic presented.
If you'd like to find this series again in the future, it's easy -- just scroll down the page until you find the "IntLawGrrls series" menu on the right, and click on "Experts at Law."
We've received several queries about the composition of these lists and suggestions of additional experts. Due to administrative resource constraints and the desire to ensure that all participating experts have consented to be listed here , the lists are currently limited to IntLawGrrls bloggers, guests, and alumnae. We welcome the voices of additional experts; please contact me via e-mail if you are a female scholar of international law and would like to be added to one of these lists.
