This New Year marks the arrival of the second class of Graduate Certificate in International Law students here at the University of Georgia School of Law.

Through the initiative of the law school’s Dean Rusk International Law Center, postgraduate students from other disciplines within the university will earn this academic certificate following their successful completion, in classes alongside J.D., LL.M., and M.L.S. students, of fifteen credit hours chosen from among the law school’s rich comparative, transnational, and international law curriculum; courses include Public International Law, International Human Rights, International Trade Law, Immigration Law, International Law Colloquium, and Global Governance.

Joining the first cohort, this second class of five students includes:

Three doctoral students, all from the Franklin College of Arts and Sciences: Thomas Kingsley, a Ph.D. candidate in Linguistics who is researching the effects of significant language contact, primarily in the Balkans and Central Asia; Angela Mossgrove, a Ph.D. candidate in Linguistics focusing on Syntax; and Benjamin Maurice Roy, a Ph.D. candidate in History, whose research focuses on the cognitive history of tobacco in the nineteenth century.

Two master’s students, both from the School of Public and International Affairs: Michael Parks, a candidate for the M.A. in International Affairs, and Hayley Worsfold, a candidate for the Master of International Policy degree.

Details on application of and matriculation toward the Graduate Certificate in International Law are available here and by contacting the initiative’s administrator, Sarah Quinn, Associate Director for Global Practice Preparation at the Dean Rusk International Law Center, squinn[at]
