I am delighted to announce that Professor Lécia Vicente from LSU Law is joining us as a guest blogger at the BLPB this month. Her posts will be on Sundays through the end of the month. You can find her work on SSRN here.
Professor Vicente teaches Business Associations, a Comparative Corporate Law Seminar, the Louisiana Law of Obligations, and Western Legal Traditions (a comparative and legal methodology course). Her recent scholarship focuses on the several dimensions of property rights within the firm’s contractual framework. She is also expanding her research to include law and development as a result of her consultancy work with developing countries and various other professional engagements, including her roles as:
- a delegate to the 74th Session of the United Nations General Assembly in 2019;
- the Head of Delegation of the African Union at the United Nations’ High-Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development under the auspices of the United Nations Economic and Social Council in 2016; and
- an advisor of the African Union at the United Nations Sustainable Development Summit for the adoption of the Post-2015 development agenda.
Professor Vicente holds an LL.M. in Comparative, European and International Laws and a Ph.D. from the European University Institute, Florence, Italy. Her undergraduate degree was earned at the Faculty of Law, Catholic University of Portugal. She beings unique interdisciplinary perspectives to her scholarship and teaching--and now to our blog! Please join me in welcoming her to our pandemic "virtual pod" as she posts over the next few weeks.
