International Ties

 

The Insurance Law Center prides itself on its international focus.  Our students hail from all over the world and so do our faculty.  Professors from France,  Italy, and China regularly teach insurance law at the Law School and we enjoy hosting visiting scholars from abroad.

Our faculty lectures often in Europe and has collaborated with Lloyds of London and the Insurance Law Institute at Queen Mary University of London. The Center also has deep ties with China.  Professor Xin Chen, a leading insurance scholar at the University of International Business and Economics in Beiijing (in photo, in the back at the right), has worked closely with the Center for many years.  Meanwhile, in May 2014, the Center was honored to co-host an international symposium on liability insurance law with Renmin Law School in Beijing.

The Center has also broadened its activities to South Africa. In 2009, the Center held its fall symposium on South African financial reforms.  In the future, the Center looks forward to extending its ties to other parts of the globe.
