Professor Duncan Hollis has been elected to the Inter-American Juridical Committee of the General Assembly of the Organization of American States.

The Committee serves the Organization as an advisory body on juridical matters of an international nature and promotes the progressive development and the codification of international law. It also studies juridical problems related to the integration of the developing countries of the Hemisphere and, insofar as may appear desirable, the possibility of attaining uniformity in their legislation.
