PACIFIC-ASIAN LEGAL STUDIES


There really is no place in the United States like the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa and the William S. Richardson School of Law to study Pacific-Asian studies and Pacific-Asian law. As you learn more about us, we hope that you are impressed.


Still, we also know choosing between law schools is a difficult and often confusing choice, and we are eager to speak with you to not only get to know you but to chat about how earning a Richardson JD with specialization through our PALS Program can help you advance your goals.
