Temple Law Celebrates 20th Anniversary of Law Program in Japan

Temple Law School recently celebrated the 20th anniversary of the Law Program in Japan, a study abroad experience held each year at Temple University's campus in Tokyo.  As the only ABA-approved study abroad experience in Asia, Temple's program is a sought-after destination for law students from around the country.

Representing the Temple Law faculty were Dean JoAnne Epps, Associate Deans Duncan Hollis and Greg Mandel, and Professors Salil Mehra and Jaya Ramji-Nogales.  As a part of the celebration, the faculty members held a day-long symposium discussing their various fields of study:  cybersecurity (Hollis), intellectual property (Mandel), antitrust (Mehra), and human rights and development (Ramji-Nogales). 

"It's really significant that Temple University made a commitment to this country 32 years ago and that our program made a commitment 20 years ago," remarked Dean Epps. "And I'm really proud that we get to celebrate this passage of time and rededicate our commitment to legal education in Japan."
