Understanding International Law With Chantal Thomas of Cornell
 
In her current position as a professor of law, Chantal Thomas of Cornell helps aspiring legal minds to reach their full potential. She began her legal career after graduating cum laude with a Juris Doctor degree from Harvard Law School in 1995. Thomas also served as a primary editor of the Harvard Law Review, one of the most prestigious student-run law journals in the United States. Thomas is currently pursuing a PhD with the University of Cambridge and expects to complete her studies in 2014.
 
Because the field of international law is so complex and diverse, in recent years Thomas has concentrated her efforts in the Middle East and North Africa. By narrowing her focus to these regions of the world, she has been able to develop an understanding of the labor conditions, economic pressures and legal systems present in these countries. This allows Thomas to provide relevant and practical advice to a number of institutions and organizations within the scholarly and political frameworks. She currently serves as a member of the United States Department of State Advisory Committee on International Law and as a consultant for the Qatar Foundation and for the USAID Bureau for Democracy, Conflict, and Humanitarian Affairs.
 
Chantal Thomas has been published in several major law journals and has contributed chapters for some of the most important works on the legal ramifications of World Trade Organization, international trade and labor and constitutional issues in the economic arena. She continues to provide guidance to students and to consult with major organizations to shed some light on these issues within the global community.
