Introducing Guest Blogger Jenia Turner
I’m delighted to introduce Professor Jenia Iontcheva Turner who will be guest blogging with us this month. Jenia is an Associate Professor at SMU Dedman School of Law, where she teaches criminal procedure, comparative criminal procedure, international criminal law, and international organizations. Before joining SMU, Jenia served as a Bigelow Fellow at the University of Chicago Law School, where she taught legal research and writing and comparative criminal procedure. She attended law school at Yale, where she was a Coker Fellow and articles editor for the Yale Law Journal and the Yale Journal of International Law. After her first year of law school, she was a summer clerk at the Appeals Chamber of the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia, and the following summer, she worked at the Federal Public Defender’s Office in Houston and the New York and Paris offices of Debevoise & Plimpton.
Jenia’s scholarship interests include comparative and international criminal law and procedure. Her articles have appeared in the Virginia Law Review, the Michigan Law Review, the American Journal of Comparative Law, the Virginia Journal of International Law, and the Stanford Journal of International Law. She has just written a textbook exploring plea bargaining from a comparative perspective and is now working on an article about ethical dilemmas of international criminal defense attorneys.
