New Visitor at iCourts - Tatiana Sainati

Tatiana Sainati is the Legal Adviser to Judge Rosemary Barkett on the Iran-United States Claims Tribunal. She earned a J.D. and LL.M. with high honors in International and Comparative Law from Duke University School of Law in 2013. Beginning in 2014, she will work as a Fellow with the International Justice Resource Center in San Francisco, providing support to advocates before international human rights institutions. In 2015, Tatiana will serve as a clerk to Judge M. Margaret McKeown on the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. Sainati's research focuses on international human rights institutions, comparative approaches to adjudication, and international criminal law. On her visit to iCourts on August 27, 2014, Sainati will present an article entitled “Human Rights Class Actions: Rule 23 and the Pilot Judgment Procedure at the European Court of Human Rights," which develops a framework for the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) to strengthen the procedural protections of its new pilot judgment procedure, by adapting the protections afforded by the American class action enshrined in Rule 23. The article will be published in the Winter 2014 edition of the Harvard Journal of International Law.
