February 03, 2010

The University of Pennsylvania Law School will co-sponsor the inaugural East Asian Law and Society Conference and sponsor a reception in Hong Kong on Feb. 5 to welcome participants and show its support for this new, cross-disciplinary initiative.  The conference, hosted at Hong Kong University, will bring together experts from around the globe to discuss cutting edge issues related to law and its impact in East Asia.  Deputy Dean for International Affairs Eric A. Feldman will attend the conference on behalf of Penn Law.  “The Law School is pleased to support the first East Asian Law and Society Conference and looks forward to expanding its ties in the region,” Dean Feldman noted before his departure for Hong Kong.

Penn Law is one of the nation’s premier law schools teaching East Asian law.  Professor Jacques deLisle, an expert in Chinese and international law, together with Dean Feldman, a leading scholar on law and society in Japan, lead a full array of programs that generate top scholarship in their respective fields and offer students a variety of extra- and co-curricular opportunities in the region, including internships, conference opportunities and study abroad.
