Deborah Pearlstein Joins Opinio Juris
We are very happy to announce that, as of Monday, Deborah Pearlstein of Princeton University’s Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs will be joining Opinio Juris as our newest (OK, only by two weeks) member.
A scholar and practitioner in national security law, Deborah served from 2003 to 2007 as the founding director of the Law and Security Program at Human Rights First (formerly the Lawyers’ Committee for Human Rights). During that time she oversaw litigation and advocacy activities concerning the human rights implications of U.S. counterterrorism policies.
Among her other notable experiences, Deborah clerked on the U.S. Supreme Court for Justice John Paul Stevens and served as a speechwriter for President Clinton.
We look forward to Deborah’s contributions and are very happy to have her as our colleague.
