Valparaiso University Law School will host Paola Bergallo, professor of law at Universidad de San Andrés in Buenos Aires, Argentina, for a guest lecture at 4 p.m. (CST) Jan. 26 at Wesemann Hall.

Bergallo is interested in feminist critiques of the law and in socio-legal theory and research in constitutional and human rights issues. She has published several articles, mainly on topics related to gender and women’s human rights, remedies and public law litigation, and she has presented papers at conferences in the Americas and Europe.

Bergallo holds an LL.B. with honors from the Universidad de Buenos Aires and a Master of Laws from Columbia University. She completed a Master of the Science of Law at Stanford University, where she is a J.S.D. candidate. She has worked as a researcher and consultant in projects of the Center for Reproductive Rights, the United Nations Fund for Population Activities and the Pan-American Health Organization.

The school hosts a speaker each year for “The MLK Lecture,” in conjunction with Martin Luther King Jr. Day to promote civic dialogue on topics that honor the spirit, memory and life’s work of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.
