Associate Professor of Law Tae-Ung Baik is the author of “Emerging Human Rights Systems in Asia," an in-depth look at significant changes in Asia over the last several decades and the growth of key elements that support human rights.
David L. Callies, the Benjamin A. Kudo Professor of Law, has just released a new publication, “Development by Agreement." The book, published by the American Bar Association, explores how agreements can be used to resolve a host of land use issues, such as development, annexation and conservation.
Additionally, the book offers extensive chapters on how to negotiate and draft such agreements, and includes samples and checklists on a CD-ROM.
Callies was joined in the work by co-authors Cecily Talbert Barclay and Julie A. Tappendorf.
Callies’ teaching areas include Land Use Law, State and Local Government, and Real Property Law.
Professor of Law Justin D. Levinson has authored “Implicit Racial Bias Across the Law,” a powerful exploration of unconscious and automatic biases through the lens of new social science evidence.
Levinson dissects the continued subordination of historically disadvantaged groups and the legal system’s complicity in their subordination.
The work is co-edited by Robert J. Smith and published by Cambridge University Press.
Levinson teaches Business Associations, Corporate Finance, High Growth Entrepreneurship, and Law and Psychology.
