Liliana Obregón is a professor of law and director of the LLM program in international law at the University of los Andes law school in Bogotá, Colombia. She received her first law degree (Abogada) from the same university; MA from the School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) of the Johns Hopkins University, LLM (waived) and doctoral degrees (SJD) from Harvard University (Law School). She was a research scholar at the University of Helsinki from 2009 to 2012 working under the direction of professors Martti Koskenniemi and Bo Strath on the project “Between Restoration and Revolution, National Constitutions and Global Law: an Alternative View on the European Century 1815-1914.” Professor Obregón has also been a research fellow at Harvard University’s Weatherhead Institute for Global History and David Rockefeller Center for Latin American Studies; the Max Planck Institutes for Comparative and International Law in Heidelberg and European Legal History in Frankfurt. She is on the academic advisory board of several journals including the Journal of the History of International Law produced by the Max Planck Institute in Heidelberg.
In addition to her teaching, research and writing commitments, Professor Obregón supports her students’ participation in international moot court competitions. Under her coordination and coaching Los Andes students won the 2008 ELSA Moot Court Competition on WTO Law and the 2009 World Championship of the Philip C. Jessup Moot Court Competition, as well as many prizes for best memorials and oralists.
Professor Obregón’s research focuses on international legal history and historiography, ideologies of historical narratives, global and transnational intellectual history, with a particular interest in peripheral histories, colonialism and forgotten actors and events of 19th and 20th century Americas and Europe.
