It’s our great pleasure today to welcome Kaitlin Ball as an IntLawGrrls contributor. Kaitlin attended the College of Wooster, double-majoring in History and Russian Studies before heading to the University of Georgia School of Law, where she is now in her third year of law school. Kaitlin, the student president of the International Law Students Association (ILSA) for the 2013-2014 academic year, has been actively involved in UGA Law’s ILSA chapter. Kaitlin has lived, studied, and worked in the Russian Federation, Slovakia, and Bosnia and Herzegovina, and speaks fluent Russian. Kaitlin’s own blog about her experiences living and working in both Slovakia and Bosnia can be found here.
Kaitlin has interned and volunteered with a juvenile court, a human rights NGO in Slovakia, as well as other governmental and intergovernmental organizations. Ultimately, Kaitlin hopes to become involved with sustainable development or transitional justice through work with an intergovernmental organization or the State Department.
Kaitlin’s introductory post today discusses her recent visit to Srebrenica. Heartfelt welcome!
