University of Hawaii The new program "is another milestone in the law school's history of excellence," said Dean Lawrence Foster. "This program will strengthen Hawaii's already existing relationship with Asia and the Pacific, and it will build new productive relationships with the rest of the world."

The program is open to legal professionals trained outside the United States who may pursue a general course in American legal studies or specialize in comparative or environmental law.

Professor Alison Conner, who serves as the new program's director, expects to draw students from around the world and particularly from Asia and the Pacific.
