          The East Asian Legal Studies (EALS) program led an effort to conclude a cooperative agreement between UC Hastings and the Taipei Bar Association.

          The arrangement will facilitate access to the UC Hastings LLM program for recommended candidates from Taiwan and the development of a summer internship in Taiwan for UC Hastings students.

          “The agreement is an important new component of our East Asian Legal Studies program. It gives us our first formal partner in Taiwan, which has a vibrant economy and legal market,” said Keith Hand, Professor of Law and Director of the EALS program. “The East Asia region is becoming increasingly important to the professional development of our students and graduates. ”

          Over the past seven years, UC Hastings has established exchange programs in Japan, Mainland China, and Korea in order to create more opportunities for graduates in this dynamic region. Hand said the cooperative agreement with Taiwan is a valuable addition to the robust and growing partnerships UC Hastings is developing throughout the East Asia “The new internship will give UC Hastings students an opportunity to understand the basic operation of the judicial system, legal practice, and role of the bar association in Taiwan,” said Hand.

          In addition to these key components, the parties agreed to develop academic and professional exchanges on legal issues of interest to the United States and Taiwan. In a preview of such exchanges, TBA Deputy Secretary General Sally Huashin Yen visited UC Hastings in October and again in February to give public presentations on the Taiwan legal professions. Historically, Taiwan’s approach to the management of the legal profession and lawyer discipline have differed significantly from the United States. Deputy Secretary General Yen discussed the rapid evolution of these systems and new efforts on Taiwan to promote the study of legal ethics.

          “UC Hastings has become a new hub for East Asian Legal Studies here in the United States. Our agreement with the TBA is another big step in the development of this exciting program,” said Hand.
