Update from Professor of Law, Mark Levin

Professor of Law, Mark Levin,  returned this week from ten days in Nagoya and Tokyo, Japan.  In Nagoya, Mark lectured in Japanese to a hall of 300 law students and faculty at Aichi University about Hawai’i and the history of same-sex marriage in the U.S. through lenses of constitutional theory and federalism.  He shared the same talk with a gathering of constitutional law scholars at Waseda University in Tokyo the following week.  At Aichi, Mark also lectured on the emerging influence of international law documents in tobacco products liability litigation in Japan and led a workshop with undergraduate students on comparative law.  In Tokyo, Mark met with many alumni and friends of the Law School including senior international lawyers in Tokyo, Dr. Kaoru Kashiwagi (’06 Hon.), Tasuku Matsuo, and Takashi Ejiri.
