Monica Hakimi teaches and writes in the fields of public international law and U.S. foreign relations law. Her research ties together doctrine and theory to examine how international law operates and adapts to contemporary challenges, particularly in the areas of human and national security.

Kimba Wood of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York and then served as attorney-adviser in the Office of the Legal Adviser at the U.S. Department of State. While at the State Department, she counseled policymakers on nuclear nonproliferation, efforts to reconstruct Iraq immediately after the 2003 war, international investment disputes, and international civil aviation. She also served as counsel before the Iran-U.S. Claims Tribunal and worked on cases before the International Court of Justice and U.S. federal courts and agencies.
Between 2013 and 2016, Professor Hakimi was the associate dean for academic programming at Michigan Law.
