WFLS has started this occasional series of conversations with various members of the Board of Governors of the Society. In this time of challenge and social distancing, we still want to connect and learn with you, our members, and other professionals as well as students interested in international and comparative law. Come, listen and learn about what work and life are like for different professionals and how their careers evolved.
For the second part of this two-piece episode, Dean Rosa Celorio, Associate Dean for International and Comparative Legal Studies at the George Washington University Law School, will share her experience with us. Mark Agrast, Executive Director and Executive Vice President of the American Society of International Law, will interview Dean Rosa Celorio.
Dean Rosa Celorio currently works as Associate Dean for International and Comparative Legal Studies and Burnett Family Professorial Lecturer in International and Comparative Law and Policy at the George Washington University Law School in Washington, DC. She also teaches courses related to the US legal system, regional protection of human rights, and the rights of women, and publishes scholarship in these areas. Previously, Dean Celorio worked for more than a decade as Senior Attorney for the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR), one of the main organs of the regional human rights protection system for the Americas. In this capacity, she held various leadership positions, including the supervision of all the legal work performed by the specialized Rapporteurships on women, LGBTI persons, indigenous peoples, racial discrimination, children, and older persons, among others.
