Special to FlaLaw
The Florida Journal of International Law’s general editors have spent the past two weeks working diligently on their first round of edits. We are proud of all the hard work put into the upcoming journal issue by all our team members. The December issue promises to be not only legally interesting but also an insightful commentary into varied areas of international law.
Solon Solomon is among the authors whose articles have been chosen for publication in the December issue. Solomon was born in Greece and began his education there. He graduated from Hebrew University of Jerusalem with an LL.M in international law and is currently attending law school in King’s College of London. Solomon also served in the Greek Air Force from 2002-2004. His article, “The Role of International Judicial Bodies in an Era of Transforming Sovereignty: The Case of Bolivia vs. Chile” is a very interesting read.
Also appearing in the December issue is Kaveri Vaid. Vaid writes: “Discretion Operationalized through Law: Proprio Motu Decision-Making at the International Criminal Court.” Vaid is a graduate of New York University School of Law and was awarded a full scholarship to complete the LL.M. program in International Legal Studies. Vaid has also worked as an assistant to the special adviser in the International Criminal Court in The Hague, Netherlands.
FJIL is also proud to present Renzo E. Andrade and his article “Letters of Credit and Performance Bonds: How are these Popular Credit Enhancement Devices applied in International Project Finance? From their Common Law Origins to their Application in Civil Law Systems – The Peruvian Case.” Andrade has a master of laws in international legal studies from Georgetown University and is a licensed attorney in Peru. Andrade has an extensive legal and financial background working with banks and international companies.
Martin Hevia’s “From Recognition to Regulation: Access to In Vitro Fertilization and the American Convention on Human Rights” is also featured in the December issue. Hevia is licensed to practice law in Argentina and is currently the director of the LL.B. (a J.D. equivalent) at the School of Law in Torcuato Di Tella University in Buenos Aires Argentina. Hevia has written multiple articles in English and Spanish as well as books on topics ranging from contract law to the law governing contraceptive rights in Latin America.
Finally the journal is very proud to present a case comment written by one of our own members. Andrew T. Petrey’s (3L) “Case Comment – Constitutional Confines: Determining the Applicability of the Citizenship Clause to American Samoa Tuaua v. United States” promises to be an interesting read. Petrey has won the book award for Finance for Lawyers. Before coming to UF Law, Petrey graduated from Auburn University, cum laude, with dual degrees in accounting and economics.
FJIL thanks all the authors for choosing us as the medium of publication for their works. We also thank our members for working hard these past two weeks and making the December issue possible.
