Spotlight on Law Librarians: Trinie Parker
Foreign, International and Comparative Law Librarian
Harvard Law School Library
I am very pleased to post this Spotlight feature on Trinie. It is in the vein of a series of posts I envisioned roughly titled: Law Librarians with Exotic Backgrounds. Trinie definitely fits the bill. She is proficient in written and spoken Chinese can converse in Cantonese and has a working knowledge of French. Her educational pedigree is quite impressive and includes a bachelor’s degree in International Relations from the London School of Economics, an L.L.M. in Legal Theory from the European Academy of Legal Theory in Brussels, an L.L.B. in law and Chinese Studies from the University of Leeds and most recently a master’s in Library and Information Science from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
Her previous work experiences include teaching and translating in Taiwan and Belgium, conducting research and providing legal advice at the Citizens Advocacy Bureau in Leeds and working for Amnesty International in the United States. These educational and work experiences uniquely qualify Trinie to work the reference desk at Harvard’s International Legal Studies division.
Trinie is a self-confessed “foodie.” Just ask her how to prepare endive if you want to see her face light up. While in library school she spent weekends “interning” at a wine store while getting her library degree.
Editor's Note: The Spotlight on Law Librarians feature is edited by Lee Peoples, Law Librarian Blog Contributing Editor and Associate Director for Faculty, Research and Instructional Services, Oklahoma City University Law Library.
