You have a great deal of international experience working with a broad range of people from varied governance systems, legal structures, cultures, and societies. What have been some of your experiences?
I clerked for the U.S. Court of International Trade and later served as Court Counsel to the Supreme Court of the Republic of Palau during the year that Palau became an independent country. (Before then, it had been a UN Strategic Trust Territory administered by the United States). I’ve taught at law schools in China, Lithuania, Mexico, and Switzerland and have been a visiting research scientist in Italy. My husband is from Italy as well—we met in Japan. I’ve also taught seminars and lectured in the Czech Republic, Egypt, Indonesia, Jordan, Singapore, and Turkey. I also organize the Global Legal Skills Conference in different locations around the world, including Costa Rica, Italy, Mexico, and next year in Australia.
