Kristina Daugirdas teaches and writes in the fields of international law and institutions and U.S. foreign relations law. Her scholarship currently focuses on how international law does (and fails to) regulate international institutions, as well as how they contribute to the development of international law. In 2014, Professor Daugirdas was awarded the Francis Deák Prize for an outstanding article published in the
American Journal of International Law by a younger author.
In 2016–2017, Professor Daugirdas was a Visiting Fellow at the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies in Geneva and served as a consultant on public international law issues for the World Intellectual Property Organization. From 2014 to 2017, she co-authored the
Contemporary Practice of the United States section of the
American Journal of International Law.
Before joining the Michigan Law faculty, Professor Daugirdas was an attorney-adviser at the U.S. Department of State Office of the Legal Adviser. In that role, she provided guidance on the negotiation and implementation of UN Security Council sanctions and amicus participation by the U.S. government in lawsuits with foreign policy implications. Professor Daugirdas also clerked for The Hon. Stephen F. Williams of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. She earned her JD, magna cum laude, from the New York University School of Law, and her AB, with honors, from Brown University.
