She developed expertise assisting corporate clients with official memoranda, briefs, and witness statements for cases conducted under the auspices of the International Chamber of Commerce’s International Court of Arbitration (ICC Rules) and the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL Rules). She also assisted administrative tribunals with the conduct of arbitral proceedings under the ICC Rules.
Interest in Immigration:
Stephanie began focusing on international law in the latter half of her law school studies, precipitated by the looming prospect of the opportunity to live abroad. Her interest in international issues was further piqued while serving as a staff member of the Administrative Law Review, during the course of which she conducted extensive research on the treatment of inadmissible aliens. Stephanie’s devotion to migration issues was galvanized following an opportunity to study cultures in the Middle East and North Africa region, the epicenter of today’s largest migration challenge. Following her studies, she lived in Jordan, witnessed war’s effect on populations, and gained greater perspective on the causes and effects of migration. Contact Stephanie:
