Speaker profile

James T. Gathii is a professor of law and Loyola University Chicago’s Wing-Tat Lee Chair in International Law.  His distinguished record of scholarship, teaching, and practice in the field of international human rights and trade have made a lasting impact on law and policy in Africa and around the world.  At Loyola, he teaches international trade law, facilitates international law student and faculty exchanges, as well as plans and develops international programs and conferences. 

Professor Gathii is an Independent Expert of the Working Group on Extractive Industries, Environment, and Human Rights Violations in Africa formed by the African Commission on Human and Peoples’ Rights. He is a founding member of the Third World Approaches to International Law network. He serves as co-chair of the African Interest Group of the American Society of International Law, and is a member of two International Law Association Study Committees: The Study Group on the Meaning of War and the Study Group on the Principles on the Engagement of Domestic Courts in the Application of International Law. He is on the Global Faculty of the Trade Policy Training Institute (TRAPCA) in Arusha, Tanzania.  He has also served as a visiting professor at the University of Nairobi’s School of Law, and consulted for a variety of United Nations agencies on World Trade Organization Law.

Professor Gathii is widely published in the areas of international human rights and trade law and speaks extensively on these topics both in the US and abroad. His books African Regional Trade Agreements as Legal Regimes (Cambridge University Press, 2011) and War, Commerce and International Law (Oxford University Press, 2010)have received critical acclaim for their roles in examining the relationship between regional trade rules and the WTO legal system, and how international law is shaped by war and commerce, respectively.  In addition to his books, Professor Gathii has authored over 70 articles and numerous book chapters.
