          UC Hastings is pleased to present the inaugural Honorable Roger J. Traynor lecture by William S. Dodge, the first appointed Honorable Roger J. Traynor Professor of Law.

          Professor Dodge’s talk, "Alien Tort Litigation: The Road Not Taken," will take place at 3:30pm on Wednesday, August 20, 2014 in UC Hastings' Mary Kay Kane Hall, 200 McAllister Street, Alumni Reception Center (ARC). A reception will follow. Please RSVP by August 19, 2014.

          William S. Dodge

          Professor Dodge specializes in international law, international transactions, and international dispute resolution. He currently serves as Co-Reporter for the American Law Institute’s Restatement (Fourth) of Foreign Relations Law: Jurisdiction and as a member of the State Department’s Advisory Committee on International Law. From 2011 to 2012, he was the Counselor on International Law to the Legal Adviser at the U.S. Department of State.

          Professor Dodge is a co-author of the casebook Transnational Business Problems (5th ed. Foundation Press 2014) and a co-editor of International Law in the U.S. Supreme Court: Continuity and Change (Cambridge University Press 2011), which won the American Society of International Law’s 2012 certificate of merit. He has more than 40 other publications in books and law reviews. His articles have been cited more than 20 times in court opinions, including three times by the U.S. Supreme Court.

          Dodge was appointed The Honorable Roger J. Traynor Professor of Law in 2014. He was previously the Associate Academic Dean for Research.

          Roger J. Traynor

          Roger J. Traynor, the 23rd Chief Justice of the California Supreme Court, is widely considered one of the greatest legal minds of his generation. He served on the California Supreme Court for 30 years, from 1940 until his retirement from the bench in 1970; one year later he joined the faculty of UC Hastings College of the Law. He taught at the law school until 1983, the year he passed away at the age of 83. UC Hastings is privileged to house many of his papers and personal effects in the Roger J. Traynor Memorial Room of the library. The Traynor Family has been generous in establishing funds at UC Hastings with the aim of “providing the college with optimal flexibility in using the funds as needed,” according to Michael Traynor, the eldest son of the late jurist.
