Staff and Researchers

Lucienne Pulliam Lunn, Senior Project Associate
Lucienne is a doctoral candidate in her last year of the Law-Psychology Program at Widener University in Chester, Pennsylvania. She was born and raised in Baltimore, Maryland, and earned two Bachelor’s Degrees from the University of Maryland, College Park: one in Psychology, and the other in Music Performance (Bassoon). She began studying at Widener in the Fall of 2006, and completed a study abroad program in Amsterdam at the end of her first year. The following summer, she was a judicial extern at the County Court of Victoria in Melbourne, Australia. In 2009, she was given a DuPont Public Interest Fellowship to work with the Liberia Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (LEITI) in Monrovia, Liberia. Lucienne was awarded a Master’s Degree by Widener’s Institute for Graduate Clinical Psychology in January of 2011. She is currently working on a dissertation that examines whether international law has the capacity to facilitate ethnopolitical conflict resolution in Afghanistan. After she completes her studies, Lucienne would like to pursue a career in international relations.

Kevin M. Krauss, Project Fellow
Kevin is a third year law student at the Widener University School of Law in Wilmington, Delaware. Born and raised in Pennsylvania, he earned his Bachelor’s Degree at Penn State, with concentrations in Sociology and Political Science. Yearning to affect positive change in the world, Kevin began his career by helping to organize corporate fundraising initiatives for the United Way. After he enrolled in law school, he participated in a summer study abroad program at the University of Nairobi Law School. As he reflected on the lessons he learned from some of Kenya’s pre-eminent legal scholars from atop Mt. Kilimanjaro, Kevin’s path toward international law became clear. Ever since then, he has been involved in International Law at Widener. He was a participant in the Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition in 2011, and was selected to be the Student Coach of the 2012 team. He was also elected President of Widener’s Chapter of the International Law Society for the 2011-12 school year.

Sean P. Smith, Project Fellow
Sean was born and raised just outside of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. In 2006, he began his undergraduate studies at the Villanova University School of Business. Attending college close to his home made Sean want to explore the world beyond. This desire led him to pursue a minor in Mandarin Chinese and to ultimately spend seven weeks in a language-intensive program at the Beijing Language and Culture University in 2008. After his experience in China, Sean finished his undergraduate education at The Dublin Business School (where he studied business and law). He then enrolled in Widener Law School where he is now in his second year. At Widener, Sean is continuing to pursue his international interests. Most notably, he is the Chair of the Journal of International and Comparative Law for Widener’s International Law Society.
