Kudos for Mānoa’s Charles Booth and Jon Van Dyke and Hilo’s Christopher Lu and Elizabeth Stacy.

Charles D. Booth, Mānoa professor, organized a symposium in Hong Kong on Jan. 22—Corporate Rescue in Hong Kong: The Government’s 2009 Legislative Proposals. It was co-sponsored by the Institute of Asian-Pacific Business Law and the Asian Institute of International Financial Law Faculty of the University of Hong Kong. The symposium involved discussions among academics, insolvency practitioners, labor representatives, bank representatives, business people and government officials.

Christopher Lu, Hilo professor, served as a member of the Western Association of Schools and Colleges Accreditation Team to California State University of Los Angeles. The team completed the institutional capacity review and site visit and will conduct the educational effectiveness review and site visit next.

Hilo Assistant Professor Elizabeth Stacy accepted an invitation to serve on the Evolutionary Processes Doctoral Dissertation Improvement Grant advisory panel in February 2010 at the National Science Foundation in Arlington, VA.

Mānoa Professor Jon Van Dyke gave the keynote address, “Protecting the Indigenous Knowledge of the Native Hawaiian People,” at a conference in Taiwan on Restating Digital Public Domain. The conference examined the best ways of protecting the indigenous knowledge of native peoples.
