Introducing the HNMCP Spring 2022 Student Blogger

We are excited to introduce Lorea Mendiguren ‘23, who will be contributing recurring columns to our blog this spring.

Lorea is a J.D. candidate at Harvard Law School, and a current student in the Dispute Systems Design Clinic, where she is working on a project involving multi-party negotiation that aims to reopen St. Paul’s College, a historically black college in rural Virginia. Over the Winter term, she greatly enjoyed her position as a Teaching Fellow in the Negotiation Workshop.

Lorea’s legal focus is in global regulatory law and diplomacy. Her studies combine interdisciplinary interests in dispute resolution, civil rights protections, comparative law, and legal history.  Her columns this semester will draw on all of these areas of expertise and will turn a negotiation lens on geopolitical events, international trade, the challenges of group dynamics, and more.

Outside of her dispute resolution interests, Lorea serves as the Editor-in-Chief of the Harvard International Law Journal. She is also the Conference Chair for La Alianza, HLS’s Latinx affinity community. Prior to starting at HLS, Lorea graduated from the University of Southern California summa cum laude, where she completed an Honors Thesis exploring literary, theological, and pseudo-legal representations of women in romantic literature of the Middle Ages.
