Irina Tsukerman is an attorney, specializing in start-ups and non-profits. She has a BA in International/Intercultural Studies and Middle East Studies from Fordham University. Irina has received her JD from Fordham Law School, where she concentrated in National Security and international law. In addition to her legal practice, Irina is an entrepreneur who is involved in a number of projects, including creating a digital geo-museum of Crimes Against Human Dignity.
Irina is an active member of Young Professionals in Foreign Policy, and a number of other organizations with a focus on international issues. She is fluent in Russian and Spanish, and enjoys nothing more than meeting new people of different backgrounds, having intense conversations, which lead to equally intense action, writing, traveling, and photographing her experiences. Her most recent endeavors include working on her first post-graduate papers on international relations, and starting a website focused on national security, foreign affairs, international legal issues, and human rights. When she is not attending conferences or lectures related to her entrepreneurial or legal endeavors, Irina can be found browsing through historical archives or navigating her salon, built up through many years of hyperactivity in the social media.
