Welcome New Guest-Blogger Tobias Thienel
Opinio Juris is pleased to welcome Tobias Thienel, who will be guest-blogging with us for the next two weeks. Most of you will recognize Tobias as one of our most dedicated and intelligent commenters. We are confident he will be an even better read on the main stage.
Tobias is a 2004 graduate of the University of Kiel and recently completed his LL.M at the University of Edinburgh. Between degrees, he was an Assistant Editor of The Statute of the International Court of Justice: A Commentary, edited by Professor Andreas Zimmermann, Professor Christian Tomuschat, and Dr. Karin Oellers-Frahm, which was published by Oxford University Press in 2006.
Tobias’s publications include “The Admissibility of Evidence Obtained by Torture Under International Law,” 17 European Journal of International Law, 349-67 (2006), and “Foreign Acts of Torture and the Admissibility of Evidence: The Judgment of the House of Lords in A and Others v. Secretary of State for the Home Department (No. 2),” 4 Journal of International Criminal Justice 401 (2006).
Finally, a teaser: Tobias and some colleagues will soon be launching a new international-law blog — perhaps even during his visit here. Either way, we will link to the new blog as soon as it is up-and-running. Stay tuned!
