Enrollment Strong in King Hall International Summer Programs
Up to 200 judges, lawyers, and legal professionals from around the world will visit King Hall between June 14 and August 20 for the 2010 UC Davis School of Law Summer Programs, attending courses on international, transnational, and U.S. law.
The King Hall International Law Programs Office will offer a variety of programs this summer. As in past years, there will be the LL.M. in International Commercial Law Intensive Seminars, the Orientation in U.S.A. Law Program, and Global Trade: Substance and Dispute Resolution. In addition, King Hall continues its partnership with the German Institute of Arbitration with the 13th Annual International Commercial Law Seminar in Cologne, Germany. There will also be two new programs this summer: a special program for 39 students and three faculty from the China University of Political Science & Law in Beijing, and another for 30 lawyers from the Petrobras Energy Company of Brazil.
King Hall faculty participating in the Summer Programs include Associate Dean Vikram Amar and Professors Keith Aoki, Andrea Bjorklund, Alan Brownstein, Bill Hing, Tom Joo, Al Lin, Miguel Méndez, Rex Perschbacher, Lisa Pruitt, Cruz Reynoso, Donna Shestowsky, Clay Tanaka, and Carter White. In addition, Mabie Law Librarian Peg Durkin will provide instructional sessions on legal research, and other UC Davis faculty including Professor Deborah Swenson of the Department of Economics and Professor Daniel Sumner of the Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics will host sessions.
Over the past 20 years, the International Law Programs have brought more than 2,100 judges, attorneys, scholars, and legal professionals from all over the world to UC Davis to study international law, transnational law, and the U.S. legal system, in addition to overseeing King Hall's LL.M. Program, Visiting Scholars Program, and J.D. Exchange Program, which has partner universities in China, Denmark, and Ireland. The International Law Programs operate in complement with the California International Law Center at King Hall (CILC), established in February 2009.
