King Hall Welcomes Prominent Visiting Scholars

Fifteen prominent legal scholars from China, Taiwan, Turkey, Korea, India, and Japan have arrived at King Hall to participate in the UC Davis School of Law Visiting Scholar program for the 2013-14 academic year.

Each year, King Hall hosts a small number of visiting scholars through its Visiting Scholars program, providing outstanding legal experts from abroad with a supportive academic environment and access to Law School faculty and resources as they work on specific research projects.  King Hall faculty serve as research colleagues and mentors to the visitors.  Faculty participating in this year's program include Professors Floyd Feeney, Edward Imwinkelried, Carlton Larson, Elizabeth Joh, Robert Hillman, and Lisa Ikemoto.

This year's group of visiting scholars includes judges from Korea and Japan, a professor from the University of Delhi in India, a prosecutor from Taiwan, faculty members from the National Taiwan University College of Law, Zhejiang University Law School (China), Chonnam National University (Korea), Yonsei University (Korea), and other legal professionals.

"As a global law school, we are very proud of the important contribution that King Hall is making to international legal scholarship through its Visiting Scholars Program," said  International Law Programs Director Beth Greenwood. "Our visiting scholars greatly enrich our King Hall scholarly environment and create opportunities to share our outstanding resources with colleagues from around the world."
