I'm a professor at The John Marshall Law School in Chicago.  I've been teaching there for 15 years now.  I also teach in Mexico at the Facultad Libre de Derecho de Monterrey, and in Switzerland at the University of Lucerne Faculty of Law.  I'm also the Director of the Legal English Program at the International Law Institute in Washington, D.C. 

I am a former chair of the American Society of International Law's Interest Group in Teaching International Law.  I also previously chaired the Association of American Law Schools Sections on North American Cooperation, International Legal Exchange, Graduate Programs for Foreign Lawyers.  I'm the Publications Officer for the American Bar Association Section of International Law and for two more issues I'll be Editor-in-Chief of the International Law News published by that section.  I also previously chaired the international and immigration law section of the Illinois State Bar Association.  Most recently I was elected to the board of the International Law Students' Association (ILSA).

Again, welcome to this blog.  We look forward to your visits.
