The William S. Richardson School of Law at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa is set to commence an inaugural three-week winter term, January 10-28, 2005. The "J Term," as it is referred to, features three one-credit courses taught by distinguished scholars/professors from prominent law schools around the country.

William B. Gould IV, the Charles A. Beardsley Emeritus Professor at Stanford Law School, will teach "Sports Law and Labor Law." He received his A.B. from the University of Rhode Island, his LL.B. from Cornell University, and studied at the London School of Economics. From 1994-1998, Gould served as the chairman of the National Relations Labor Board.

"New Ideas in Corporate Law" will be taught by Kent Greenfield of Boston College Law School. A graduate of Brown University and the University of Chicago Law School, Greenfield was a clerk for Justice David H. Souter of the United States Supreme Court prior to joining the Boston College Law School faculty.

Morton Horwitz, the Charles Warren Professor of American Legal History at Harvard Law School, will teach "The Warren Court." He received his A.B. from City College of New York and his A.M., Ph.D. and LL.B. from Harvard. Through the generosity of Frank Boas, a William S. Richardson School of Law friend, Horwitz will be the law school‘s first Frank Boas Visiting Professor. The professorship allots for a mini-course to be taught each year by a distinguished member of the Harvard Law School faculty as part of the new "J Term."

The school has received an overwhelming response from students to participate in the "J Term" and classes are filled to maximum capacity.
