My thanks to all who came here to Athens, Georgia, earlier this month to celebrate IntLawGrrls blog, which I founded a decade before, on March 3, 2007. I saw old friends and made new ones, and reveled in watching networks form.
I’m particularly proud that our conference operated to assist many participants who are still building their careers. They included several of whom I’m especially proud:
► J.D. or LL.M. candidates, among them my students: Victoria Barker, new Editor-in-Chief of our Georgia Journal of International & Comparative Law; Chanel Chauvet, a Dean Rusk International Law Center Student Ambassador set to intern this summer in the global legal department of CARE International; LL.M. candidate Urvashi Jain; and Hannah Williams, President of Georgia Law’s International Law Society;
► Ph.D. candidates, including my former Georgia Law student Kaitlin Ball, now studying in the at Cambridge University in the United Kingdom; and
► Advocates like my former California-Davis students Monica Feltz, Executive Director, International Justice Project, Newark, New Jersey, and Kathleen A. Doty, Director of Global Practice Preparation at Georgia Law’s Dean Rusk International Law Center, as well as an M.A. Candidate in Political Science & International Affairs at our university’s School of Public & International Affairs.
Deep thanks too to Işıl Aral, Ph.D. student at England’s University of Manchester and co-founder there of the Women in International Law Network. She videotaped segments of our conference, including the start of my own remarks at our lunch-hour plenary. Reposted above and at Exchange of Notes and IntLawGrrls blogs, the video also includes remarks by Indiana-Indianapolis Law Associate Dean Karen E. Bravo, American Society of International Law President Lucinda A. Low, Temple Law Professor Jaya Ramji-Nogales, and Stanford Visiting Law Professor Beth Van Schaack.
