We are delighted to welcome Joanna Dingwall, a public international lawyer, qualified to practice law in New York, Scotland, England and Wales to speak in the University of Glasgow School Of Law 's seminar series on 'International Law as a Profession'. This series will will give students an opportunity to hear from practitioners working in different fields of international law, to learn about potential careers in the field, and to meet with individuals and organisations that could be relevant to such careers.
Currently, Joanna is based at the University of Glasgow completing a doctorate focussed on issues of law of the sea and deep seabed mining, while teaching Foundations of International Law to postgraduate students.
Throughout her practice, Joanna has advised and represented States, international organisations and private entities on an extensive range of contentious and non-contentious public international law matters, including investment law; State sovereignty over natural resources; land and maritime boundary delimitations; State succession; international environmental law; self-determination; and human rights.
Previously, Joanna was a senior associate at Volterra Fietta, the world’s first and only dedicated public international law firm. Before joining VF, Joanna was an associate in the London office of Latham & Watkins from 2008 to 2011. Prior to this, Joanna was a solicitor for the Scottish Government Legal Directorate in Edinburgh.
She will talk about her career path, the necessary skills and experiences needed, her current roles and what relevance international law has in her day to day work.
The event is followed by a more informal reception giving students a chance to talk with Joanna on a 1 to 1 basis.
