    Monica Hakimi

    Monica Hakimi, the James V. Campbell Professor of Law, teaches and writes in the fields of public international law and U.S. foreign relations law. Her research ties together doctrine and theory to examine how international law operates and adapts to contemporary challenges, particularly in the areas of human and national security.

    Professor Hakimi earned her JD from Yale Law School and her BA, summa cum laude, from Duke University. After law school, she clerked for The Hon. Kimba Wood of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York and then served as attorney-adviser in the Office of the Legal Adviser at the U.S. Department of State. While at the State Department, she counseled policymakers on nuclear nonproliferation, efforts to reconstruct Iraq immediately after the 2003 war, international investment disputes, and international civil aviation. She also served as counsel before the Iran-U.S. Claims Tribunal and worked on cases before the International Court of Justice and U.S. federal courts and agencies.

    Between 2013 and 2016, Professor Hakimi was the associate dean for academic programming at Michigan Law. She currently is a contributing editor of EJIL Talk!, the blog that is affiliated with the European Journal of International Law. She also serves on the board of editors of the American Journal of International Law, the executive council of the American Society of International Law, and the advisory board for the Institute of International Peace and Security at the University of Cologne, Germany.

    Steven R. Ratner

    Steven R. Ratner, the Bruno Simma Collegiate Professor of Law, came to the University of Michigan Law School in 2004 from the University of Texas School of Law. His teaching and research focuses on public international law and on a range of challenges facing governments and international institutions since the Cold War, including ethnic conflict, border disputes, counter-terrorism strategies, corporate and state duties regarding foreign investment, and accountability for human rights violations. Professor Ratner has written and lectured extensively on the law of war, and is also interested in the intersection of international law and moral philosophy and other theoretical issues. In 1998-99, he was appointed by the UN Secretary-General to a three-person group of experts to consider options for bringing the Khmer Rouge to justice, and he has since advised governments, NGOs, and international organizations on a range of international law issues. In 2008-09, he served in the legal division of the International Committee of the Red Cross in Geneva. A member of the board of editors of the American Journal of International Law from 1998-2008, he began his legal career as an attorney-adviser in the Office of the Legal Adviser of the U.S. State Department. He established and directs the Law School’s externship program in Geneva. In June 2010, he was one of three experts appointed to a U.N. panel that will advise Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on human rights issues related to the Sri Lankan conflict that ended last year.
