Dr. Larisa Vasileska, assistant professor of law at the University of St. Kliment Ohrisdski in Bitola, Macedonia, will be a visiting scholar at Ohio Northern University’s Center for Democratic Governance and Rule of Law for the 2015-16 academic year.
Vasileska will conduct research on comparative efforts to combat corruption in government. She also will teach courses on international criminal law in the Pettit College of Law and in the Getty College of Arts & Sciences’ criminal justice program.
Vasileska received her Ph.D. from the Faculty of Law, Public Administration and Security at Megatrend University in Belgrade, Serbia, after receiving her bachelor’s degree from St. Kliment Ohridski University and her master’s degree from St. Cyril and Methodius University in Macedonia. She teaches in the areas of criminal law and international commerce, trade and customs law. Vasileska has published numerous articles and made a number of presentations on international criminal law and customs practice throughout Europe.
The Center for Democratic Governance and Rule of Law is an outgrowth of the College of Law’s 10-year-old LL.M. in Democratic Governance and Rule of Law program. Professor Howard Fenton, the director of the Center, founded the LL.M. program and was its director for eight years. The Center sponsors speakers, programs and visiting scholars focusing on issues in law and governance reform throughout the world. It also seeks to undertake projects in rule of law implementation in transitional countries through grants and contracts with government agencies and implementers.
