Lea Brilmayer

Howard M. Holtzmann Professor of International Law
Lea Brilmayer is the Howard M. Holtzmann Professor of International Law at Yale Law School.  In addition to teaching Contracts to first-year students, she also teaches Conflict of Laws and International Courts and Tribunals, as well as seminars on the laws of war and on African current affairs. During her first decade of teaching, Professor Brilmayer’s writing interests mainly concerned conflict of laws (in particular, personal jurisdiction and choice of law); federal jurisdiction; and jurisprudence. Her interests have gradually turned to international law and international relations, which has led to two books: Justifying International Acts and American Hegemony: Political Morality in a One-Superpower World. Professor Brilmayer received a B.A. in mathematics, a J.D. from the University of California at Berkeley, and an LL.M. from Columbia Law School.
