Welcome to new International Law Prof Blog! I am very excited to be co-editing this blog with Professors Mark Wojcik, Michael Peil, and Cyndee Todgham. I am an Associate Professor of Law at Southern Illinois University (SIU) in Carbondale where I have been teaching a variety of international law courses for the past seven years. Prior to entering academia, I practiced public and private international law in Washington, D.C. for 10 years. In addition to my regular teaching duties at SIU, I co-direct a summer study abroad program for law students in Ireland and direct an Immigration Detention Project at the SIU School of Law. I am currently the Co-Chair of the Teaching International Law Interest Group of the American Society of International Law, the Vice-Chair of the International and Immigration Law Section of the Illinois State Bar Association, and the President of the Central States Law Schools Association. We hope you find this blog useful and interesting and welcome your contributions.
