March 08, 2022

Joseph Klingler, an attorney in Foley Hoag LLP’s International Litigation & Arbitration practice, will co-author the third edition of Oxford University Press’ preeminent Treaty Interpretation alongside Professor Richard Gardiner, the author of the first and second editions.The book is generally considered to be the world’s leading treatise on the subject of treaty interpretation, and Professor Gardiner the leading authority on it.

The volume, which is expected to be submitted for publication in 2024, will provide a close analysis of the rules of treaty interpretation under the Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties, and will be illustrated with updated, practical case examples. It is likely to remain the most widely recognized treatise on the subject and to be routinely consulted by practitioners and scholars alike.

Klingler, whose practice focuses on the representation of sovereign States in public international law and international investment disputes, is an expert on treaty interpretation. He has taught graduate-level courses and co-edited a well-received volume on the subject alongside Foley Hoag partners Constantinos Salonidis and Yuri Parkhomenko. More generally, Klingler has published extensively on various subjects of public international law.
