Boyd to Host Hastings Dean Frank Wu

The Boyd School of Law is very pleased to announce that its Faculty Enrichment Committee will host University of California Hastings Chancellor and Dean Frank H. Wu for a talk on Thursday, October 4, 2012.

Chancellor and Dean Wu's research and writing emphasizes issues of diversity and civic engagement. His works include Yellow: Race in America Beyond Black and White, which was immediately reprinted in its hardcover edition, and Race, Rights and Reparation: Law and the Japanese American Internment, which he co-authored under a grant from the Civil Liberties Public Education Fund. He has written on a professional basis for magazines and newspapers, including The Washington Post, National Law Journal, and Chronicle of Higher Education.

The first Asian American to serve as Dean at UC Hastings, Chancellor and Dean Wu previously taught for a decade at Howard University. He also has taught at the law schools of George Washington University, University of Maryland, Columbia University, University of Michigan, Peking University, as well as in the undergraduate programs of Johns Hopkins University and Deep Springs College. He served as Dean of Wayne State University Law School in his hometown of Detroit.

Chancellor and Dean Wu's talk on October 4 will address his latest book project as well as the state of legal education today.
