Another trend we’re watching: lawyers that swear allegiance to their own country’s legal systems, yet continue to propose the idea of worldwide law under their tutelage.
“It is a great honor to be elected President of this growing and dynamic organization,” said Pinto. “As law schools educate the next generation of lawyers about their countries law, we must also educate our students about different legal systems in this increasingly interconnected world.”
Pinto is a Professor of International Law and International Human Rights Law and the Director of the Human Rights Program, at the University of Buenos Aires Law School. She has held two mandates on behalf of the United Nations Commission on Human Rights and is the author of several books and articles on the topic of Human Rights Law.
