Law authors honored for groundbreaking works
The University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa’s William S. Richardson School of Law will honor three faculty members for their respective publications in the areas of human rights, land law and psychological issues affecting racial bias at a reception on Friday, October 19.
Tae-Ung Baik, associate professor of international criminal law, human rights law, Korean law and comparative law, is the author of Emerging Human Rights Systems in Asia (Cambridge University Press), an in-depth look at significant changes in Asia over the last several decades and the growth of key elements that support human rights.
David L. Callies, the Benjamin A. Kudo Professor of Law specializing in land use law, state and local government, and real property law, has just released a new publication, Development by Agreement. The book, published by the American Bar Association, explores how agreements can be used to resolve a host of land use issues, such as development, annexation and conservation. Development by Agreement also offers extensive chapters on how to negotiate and draft such agreements, and includes samples and checklists on a CD-ROM. It was co-authored by Cecily Talbert Barclay and Julie A. Tappendorf.
Justin D. Levinson, professor of business associations, corporate finance, high growth entrepreneurship and law and psychology, has authored Implicit Racial Bias Across the Law, a powerful exploration of unconscious and automatic biases through the lens of new social science evidence dissecting the continued subordination of historically disadvantaged groups and the legal system’s complicity in their subordination. The work is co-edited by Robert J. Smith and published by Cambridge University Press.
