Delfina Beguerie is a J.S.D. candidate at Yale Law School, where she also obtained her LL.M. degree in 2017. In 2016-2017, she was a Fulbright Scholar. Before coming to Yale, Delfina taught constitutional law at Universidad de San Andrés and served as a junior clerk at the Argentine Supreme Court of Justice.

Delfina's academic interests lie at the intersection of human rights and constitutional law. Her J.S.D. dissertation focuses on the ways in which different communities recognize constitutional meaning to human rights. Using the case study of the Inter-American Court of Human Rights and its legitimacy within specific Latin American contexts, Delfina develops a theory to address the dilemmas between human rights and constitutional law.
