Since its founding in 1990, the Center has initiated and co-sponsored a variety of conferences and outreach programs.
The Center also formalizes and expands many of the Law School's academic interactions with universities, government ministries, and the private sector. It provides scholarly exchanges by hosting visitors to the Law School and assisting Law School faculty to visit at universities in East and Southeast Asia.
The Center has been key in the establishment of Executive Masters in Law Programs (EMLP) between the Law School and schools in Shanghai (East China University of Political Science and Law), Bangkok (Thammasat University), and Kyoto (Doshisha University). Students who successfully complete the program will be awarded the University of Wisconsin’s LLM - Legal Institutions degree. Executive Masters Program in the news.
The Center works with the Law School's Graduate Programs to develop special courses. The Center continues to keep in touch with alumni/ae of the Graduate Programs division long after they have graduated.
The Center offers programs and student job positions especially for J.D. students, including summer internships in Thailand and in Vietnam. Reports of past students' experiences in the summer internships as well as summaries of the Center's activities over the years can be found in our annual newsletters.
The Center also offers support for students who wish to do independent research projects in countries of East or Southeast Asia that lead to a research paper under Law 990 or as a published paper.
