Manoa’s Meritorious Teachers
William S. Richardson School of Law
Alison Conner is a professor in the William S. Richardson School of Law. Conner grew up in an academic family and believes teaching is one of the highest callings available. Prior to coming to the university, she spent 5 years practicing law on Wall Street and 12 years teaching in China, Singapore, Taiwan and Hong Kong. She utilizes her international experiences in her classes to help students understand the nuances of legal education and judicial functions in Asia.
Conner is a key organizer of the proposed graduate Comparative Law (LLM) Program. She also designed and introduced three new courses on Chinese and Asian law, which constitute important offerings in the law school’s Pacific-Asian legal studies curriculum.
Conner is an accomplished scholar, recently completing several articles and chapters on China and comparative law issues. Her most recent honors include being named Outstanding Professor of Law, Fulbright Distinguished Lectureship in Law and an invited faculty member to "China and the Global Community" at the Salzburg Seminar. Conner is also the external examiner for Chinese law courses at London University.
A student noted, "Alison Conner has a well deserved reputation as an expert on Chinese law and is one of the main reasons I chose to attend the University of Hawaii’s William S. Richardson School of Law."
