About Us

The Inter-American Court of Human Rights Project was founded in 2011 by Professor Cesare Romano with the assistance of Loyola of Los Angeles International and Comparative Law Review's Volume 34 Executive Board.

Each year, the IACHR Project is comprised of a team of Loyola of Los Angeles International and Comparative Law Review editors and staff members. Under the supervision of Professor Cesare Romano and the Chief IACHR Editor, editors and staff members work together to author comprehensive summaries of judgments rendered by the Inter-American Court of Human Rights. The Senior IACHR Editor works in concert with Loyola Law School’s Information and Technology Department to update and maintain the Project's web components.
