Law faculty members to be honored for authoring groundbreaking books
Three faculty members at the William S. Richardson School of Law on the UH Manoa campus will be honored at a reception on Friday, October 19, at the Pacific Club for their respective publications in the areas of human rights, land law, and psychological issues affecting racial bias.
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.
Baik teaches International Criminal Law, Human Rights Law, Korean Law and Comparative Law.
The book is published by Cambridge University Press.
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.
