Julie Bloch
Transitional Justice Scholar

Julie Nadine Helene Bloch holds a JD from Cornell Law School with a specialization in International Legal Affairs and a concentration in Public Law. She was the recipient of the Freeman Award for Civil-Human Rights and received multiple academic awards in courses such as International Criminal Law and Law and Social Change: Comparative Law in Africa. During her studies, she was a Notes Editor for Cornell’s International Law Journal and a student advocate in the Cornell International Human Rights Clinic.

Her work experience focuses on global and transitional justice as well as the need for fostering accountability on a regional and international scale. Julie has worked as a legal clerk for the Magistrat de Liaison at the French Embassy where she navigated the variations between common and civil law in criminal prosecutions. She worked with the Freedom of Information and Expression practice group of Open Society Justice Initiative on administrative and constitutional law cases involving government accountability, access to information in areas of public interest, lack of transparency, and corruption. Most recently, she was an associate with the Cornell Center on the Death Penalty Worldwide where her work focused on wrongful capital convictions and the problem of a flawed international criminal justice system. She worked to promote the access to justice of capital defendants and contributed to a foreign national’s clemency petition.

Julie is currently a candidate for the International Legal Studies LLM at NYU School of Law and is a student advocate in the Global Justice Clinic.
