The first half of this week we’ve focused on our human rights-related offerings. Today, we shift courses slightly and talk with Professor Susan Franck.
In addition to teaching Professional Responsibility, Professor Franck also leads several international business and trade-related courses including International Commercial Litigation and Arbitration and International Business and Investment Dispute Resolution. Last year, in connection with the Frances Lewis Law Center and Transnational Law Institute, she organized the Joint Symposium on International Investment and Alternative Dispute Resolution (http://investmentadr.wlu.edu). This Symposium took place in Lexington and brought together practitioners, experts and stakeholders from all over the world to discuss fundamental issues about the efficient prevention and management of investment treaty conflict.
Last week, we sat down to talk with Professor Franck about her International Business and Investment Dispute Resolution course, the UNTAD Symposium and her thoughts on teaching at W&L Law.
