Notre Dame believes that this collaboration will improve the research of the two law schools, and provide advanced scholarships and insights for the benefit of the entire world.”
Dean of the Faculty of Law Buchman, Sharon Hans, said that there is great enthusiasm around the launch of the faculty exchange program. “Replacing visiting professors from both law schools on an annual basis will strengthen the ties that have already begun to form between the two institutions,” Hans said. “The two law schools share many areas of research and interest that ensure fruitful collaboration.”
