Educating Lawyers for a Changing World

The Asian Law Center’s teaching, research and public policy work on Asia and developing economies is one of the areas of excellence for which University of Washington School of Law is known nationally and internationally.

We are part of a UW tradition of public service, providing world-class legal education for U.S. and international lawyers focused on Asia. We support the legal profession and government agencies with expert research on Asian and developing legal systems.
