HOWARD CHANG
Professor of Law

Howard ChangChang focuses on the impact of international trade on environmental policy. He has written a series of articles defending the use of trade restrictions that promote protection of the global environment, as a matter of not only legal doctrine but also economic policy. His first article in this series was originally published in the Georgetown Law Journal, then reprinted and excerpted in other law publications. He has also analyzed labor migration from the international trade perspective, proposing that nations reduce legal barriers to labor migration as part of their negotiations to remove other trade barriers. His work in this line of research has appeared in several publications including the University of Pennsylvania Law Review.
