JURIST announced the addition of two new columnists, including Professor Charles Jalloh of the University of Pittsburgh School of Law and Edsel Tupaz, the founder and managing partner of Tupaz & Associates, a public-interest law firm. The addition of Professor Jalloh and Mr. Tupaz represents JURIST's first foray into presenting columns that will appear on regular basis. Columns will appear in JURIST's Commentary section.

Charles Jalloh is an Assistant Professor of Law at the University of Pittsburgh School of Law. He also holds affiliate faculty appointments at the Ford Institute for Human Security in Pitt's Graduate School of Public and International Affairs as well as the African Studies Program. Professor Jalloh's recent scholarship centers on questions of jurisdiction and selectivity in international criminal law, including in particular, the tense relationship between Africa and the International Criminal Court. Professor Jalloh's initial column focuses on issues of international criminal justice, especially as they pertain to Africa. Professor Jalloh's column will be featured in JURIST on a monthly basis.

"We are very excited that Professor Jalloh and Edsel Tupaz have agreed to write for JURIST on a regular basis," said Matthew Shames, JURIST's Executive Director. "Over the past two years, JURIST has greatly increased the depth of its commentary pieces from law professors, legal professionals and other legal experts. The move to include regularly appearing columns is a natural extension of this growth. The fact that our first two columnists are so accomplished and recognized, both domestically and internationally, underscores the continued recognition of JURIST as a unique media outlet and further demonstrates our commitment to empower our audience by eliminating traditional barriers to expert legal analysis."
