Jens Iverson is an Assistant Professor of International Law. His research focus is the normative and historical foundations of the international law applicable to the transition from armed conflict to peace (jus post bellum). A member of the California Bar, the Thurston Society, and the Order of the Coif, he received his Juris Doctor cum laude from the University of California, Hastings, and his Bachelor of Arts from Yale University. As the co-founder of a human rights clinic, he helped represent the former Prime Minister of Haiti in a successful petition to the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights which ultimately resulted in a landmark ruling requiring Haitian prison reform. He practiced at the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia for over three years on both the Popović et al. and Prlić et al. cases.
