Miami Law Professor Kathleen Claussen accepted the invitation from Oxford University Press to join a team of two colleagues to serve as as co-editor in chief of the Journal of International Economic Law, the leading intellectual publication in the field of international economic law.

This peer-reviewed journal publishes scholarly manuscripts from scholars, government officials, legal professionals, and others on a broad range of subjects related to international economic law. Members of the editorial board are world class scholars in areas of international investment, trade, finance, tax, intellectual property and business law.

“It is an honor to be appointed to this important role for this outstanding journal,” said Claussen. “I’m excited to begin work with my terrific co-editors-in-chief, with whom it will be a privilege to lead.”

Claussen will serve as co-editor in chief from 2021 to 2025 with Sergio Puig from Arizona Law and Michael Waibel from the University of Vienna.

“I am grateful to the JIEL Board and to Oxford University Press for their trust in us to direct the journal’s next years, following the incredible leadership of Chris Brummer and Joost Pauwelyn,” said Claussen.

Professor Claussen’s primary scholarly interests include trade and investment law, dispute settlement and procedure, international contracts and issues in cross-border business transactions, national security including cybersecurity law, and federalism and conflict of laws. Prior to joining the Miami Law faculty in 2017, Professor Claussen was Associate General Counsel at the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative in the Executive Office of the President. There, she represented the United States in trade dispute proceedings and served as a legal advisor for the United States in international trade negotiations. She also worked on economic security issues on behalf of USTR at the National Cyber Investigative Joint Task Force.
