Did you know that the Rapoport Center for Human Rights and Justice holds periodic Happy Hour Speaker Series? They are usually on Mondays from 3:30pm to 5:30pm at the School of Law 3.214 (faculty lounge).

The Center for Women's and Gender Studies will co-sponsor one of the Human Rights Happy Hour Speakers on Monday, November 22, 2010. Her name is Paola Bergallo, and she is a professor at the Universidad de San Andrés in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Her talk will be about “Cycles of Right to Health Litigation: The Elusive Argentine Experience”.

Professor Bergallo's research interests center on feminist critiques of the law, socio-legal theory and constitutional and human rights issues. She served as a researcher and consultant in projects of the Centro de Estudios de Estado y Sociedad (CEDES), the Center for Reproductive Rights, the UN Fund for Population (UNFPA) and the Pan-American Health Organization (PAHO) on gender and law, women human rights and sexual and reproductive rights. She is a founding member of Red Alas, Red de Académicas Latinoamericanas, a network which aims to reform Latin American legal education from a gender and sexuality perspective. In addition to an LL.B. with honors earned from the Universidad de Buenos Aires (1994), Professor Bergallo also holds a Masters of Law Degree from Columbia University (2000) and has completed a Masters in Legal Research (2003) from Stanford University where she is a J.S.D. candidate.

We hope to see you there!
