2006 Grad Lands Dream Job
After passing the bar, Sean Monkhouse, ’06 got a job at the United Nations and is working as a Court Officer for the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) in The Hague (The Netherlands). Monkhouse says , “It's great so far. It's a short-term contract, but I hope my position will be renewed for a year.” While in law school, he worked closely with Professor George E. Edwards, Director of the Program on International Human Rights Law (PIHRL), and participated in several PIHRL summer internships, including the Unrepresented Nations and Peoples Organization (The Hague), the Uganda Law Society’s Legal Aid Project (Kampala, Uganda), and ICTY (The Hague), where he worked specifically on the case of Slobodan Milosevic, former President of Yugoslavia. In January, 2006 Monkhouse also attended meetings of the International Criminal Court (ICC), held at the United Nations in New York, where he served as “Rapporteur” for the Council of American Students in International Negotiations (CASIN). At that time, he said his “dream job” after graduation would be working in international war crimes litigation. Looks like a dream come true.
