It's our great pleasure to welcome Elizabeth B. Ludwin King (right) as an IntLawGrrls contributor
Elizabeth is a Visiting Assistant Professor at Wake Forest University School of Law in Winston Salem, North Carolina, where she teaches criminal procedure, international human rights, and international criminal law.
She received her B.A. from Duke University, her J.D. from Georgetown University Law Center, and her LL.M. in International Law from the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy. After graduating from Fletcher, Elizabeth moved to Buenos Aires for a year, where she did research and taught U.S. constitutional law at the University of Palermo in that Argentinian capital.
Elizabeth researches and publishes mainly in the related areas of transitional justice, international human rights, and international criminal law. In her post below, which derives from an article she just published in Cornell Journal of International Law, Elizabeth she examines a new law in Argentina that allows judges to order compulsory DNA testing in certain circumstances, and connects it to efforts to locate children who were disappeared during the military dictatorship of the '70s and '80s.
