New Appointments for Professor Sarah Dadush Will Advance Global Engagement of Rutgers–Newark Law
Sarah Dadush had a decade of international legal experience in both the private and public sectors prior to joining the Rutgers School of Law–Newark faculty last fall. In two 2014-2015 academic year appointments, Dadush, Assistant Professor of Law, will have the opportunity to share that experience and further the international engagement of the law school. She will serve as Vice Chair for the American Society of International Law’s (ASIL) International Organizations Interest Group (IOIG) and as a Rutgers University Faculty Representative to the United Nations.
Says Dadush: “I very much look forward to collaborating with members of our faculty to build on these appointments and contribute positively to the law school’s institutional and inter-disciplinary partnerships.”
ASIL members are attorneys, academics, judges, students, and others with expertise or interest in promoting the establishment and maintenance of international relations on the basis of law and justice. IOIG has more than 800 members and convenes scholars and practitioners with an interest in the role and workings of international organizations.

Professor Dadush holds a J.D. and LL.M. in International and Comparative Law from Duke University School of Law.
