My name is Nahuel Maisley, I study Law and Political Science at the University of Buenos Aires (Argentina). In 2010 and 2011 I represented my Law School at the international rounds of the Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition. In 2010 and 2011 I received research scholarships from UBA-Law School and UBA, respectively, to research on issues of international law and political theory. In Spring 2012, I studied for a semester at Columbia Law School, with a scholarship from the Student Exchange Program of the UBA-Law School. I currently work at the Research Office of UBA-Law School.

I'm interested in international law and political theory, particularly in issues related with the democratic legitimacy of international law.
