Professor Telesetsky joined the University of Idaho College of Law in 2009, after eight years of practicing as an attorney in California, Washington, and abroad. Her practice focused on public international law and environmental law. She had the distinction of representing the Government of Ethiopia before the Ethiopia-Eritrea Claims Commission at the Permanent Court of Arbitration. In 2003 and 2004, she was a Bosch Fellow in Germany where she worked for the German Foreign Ministry on promoting international food security and assisted in drafting guidelines on implementation for the “Right to Food”. As a Fulbright Fellow and a Berkeley Human Rights Center fellow, she collaborated with communities in the Philippines and Papua New Guinea on developing culturally appropriate legal solutions to environmental protection problems. In addition to bachelors and masters degrees in Anthropology, Professor Telesetsky earned her law degree from the University of California-Berkeley (Boalt Hall) and an LLM in International Law from the University of British Columbia.
