Professional Biography

Born and raised in Canada, Rashmi Goel brings to bear her experience on both sides of the border in her Criminal Law class and in her upper-level seminars, Multiculturalism, Race and the Law and Comparative Law. These courses reflect her interest in culturally specific adjudication - the use of a litigant's cultural background to formulate a particular adjudicative process or outcome. In conjunction with her ongoing research and scholarship in this area, she has also developed expertise in international criminal law and restorative justice. Outside the law school, Goel puts her knowledge in these areas to work in Colorado and California, helping to establish dispute-resolution mechanisms for high school students.
