International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea (ITLOS)

Itlos_logo Mr Jin-Hyun Paik (Republic of Korea) will be sworn in as a member of the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea (ITLOS) at a ceremony in Hamburg, Germany on March 16, 2009.  Judge Paik was elected on 6 March 2009 at a Special Meeting of States Parties to the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea to fill the vacancy created by the death of Judge Choon-Ho Park (Republic of Korea). Judge Paik will serve the remainder of his predecessor's nine-year term, which expires on 30 September 2014.  The curriculum vitae of Judge Paik may be found by clicking here.

If you happen to be a Hamburger (someone who lives in Hamburg), you might stop by to watch the swearing in, which will be at 11:00 a.m. on March 16.
