Legal Careers Promoting the Rule of Law Abroad

Thursday, 24 January

David Pimentel, a visiting associate professor of law at Ohio Northern University, and former Head of Rule of Law for the South Sudan UN Mission, has led projects to reform the judicial systems of post-war Bosnia and post-communist Romania.  Pimentel has consulted on judicial and constitutional reform in Turkey, Mozambique, and Nepal and managed a UN War Crimes Tribunal as well.

He will speak about opportunities for young lawyers with a more global vision to work in this exciting field, including Ohio Northern’s unique educational offering to prepare students for such work:  a concurrent, three-year JD/LLM program in democratic governance and rule of law. If you have an interest in working internationally to promote legal reforms and to improve the lives of people in Third World and war-torn nations, or if you are just curious, this presentation is for you.
