Isabel Marcus on Teaching Domestic Violence Advocacy in Eastern Europe
By University at Buffalo Law School
to UBLaw Conversations, a production of University at Buffalo Law
School, The State University of New York. Today is February 21, 2008,
and I'm Jim Milles, Professor of Law and Director of the Law Library.
Our guests today are Isabel Marcus and Stephanie Phillips. Professor
Marcus' research interests have been in the area of family law,
domestic violence, and international women's human rights. Her current
research project is a comparative analysis of the implementation of
criminal code provisions regarding domestic violence in Eastern Europe
and the former Soviet Union. She has taught extensively in universities
in Eastern Europe (Poland, Russia, Lithuania, the Czech Republic) and
Asia (People's Republic of China, India, Pakistan, and Thailand).
Professor Marcus currently teaches family law, international human
rights law, and feminist theory. She is interviewed here by Professor Stephanie Philllips.
