About Juscelino F. Colares

Juscelino Colares' research and teaching focus on the intersection between international and domestic law through formal and empirical analyses of international and domestic adjudication. His scholarly work has appeared in numerous peer-reviewed journals and law reviews, including, the Journal of Empirical Legal Studies, Journal of World Trade, Revista dos Tribunais (Brazil), Cornell International Law Journal, Vanderbilt Journal of Transnational Law and Wake Forest Law Review.
Colares began his legal education in Brazil and pursued graduate studies in France at Université de Montpellier, where he specialized in international economic law. Later, as a Fulbright Fellow, he obtained a Ph.D. from the University of Tennessee, writing his dissertation on the political economy of the U.S./Japan automobile trade. After teaching law and economics in Brazil, he earned a J.D. at Cornell. Upon graduation, he practiced at Dewey & LeBoeuf (formerly Dewey Ballantine) in Washington, D.C. Since joining the Syracuse University College of Law faculty in 2005, Colares has offered new perspectives on international dispute settlement and its impact on international trade and domestic regulatory discretion.
Professor Colares clerked for the Hon. Jean-Louis Debré, Chief Justice of the French Constitutional Court (Conseil constitutionnel) during the 2008-2009 term and was also a visiting professor of law at Ecole normale supérieure in Paris. Since his return to the United States, Colares has been engaged in empirical research on French courts' handling of EU-conformity challenges while continuing his work on empirical analysis of WTO adjudication.
