Foley Hoag Partner Constantinos Salonidis Invited to Teach at Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies, Geneva

October 10, 2019

Foley Hoag LLP partner Constantinos Salonidis has been invited to teach an eight-hour module on “Treaty Interpretation” at the LL.M. Programme in International Law at the prestigious Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies, Geneva.

The LL.M. in International Law is a one-year postgraduate degree course that provides advanced, comprehensive and practical training in international law. Founded in 1927, the Graduate Institute is Europe's oldest school of international affairs, and has been at the forefront of public international law, in theory and in practice ever since.

In his module, Salonidis will address the interplay of Articles 31 and 32 of the Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties and the agents of treaty interpretation. He will also highlight the dynamic nature of the process and the central role of the values pursued by the treaty interpreter.

As a member of the firm’s International Litigation & Arbitration Department, Salonidis focuses on international dispute resolution, especially in cases before the International Court of Justice and arbitration panels administered under the ICSID, UNCITRAL and ICC Arbitration Rules, and associated proceedings in various jurisdictions.
