C.J. Larkin, administrative director of the law school’s Alternate Dispute Resolution Program and senior lecturer in law, is serving as a Fulbright Senior Specialist at Utrecht University in the Netherlands. During her summer appointment, she is focusing on various aspects of ADR.

The law school has an ongoing partnership with Utrecht University through both the Transnational Law Program and the Summer Institute for Global Justice. Washington University Law Professors Kathleen Clark and Charles McManis are among the faculty teaching in the institute this summer.

Larkin is one of more than 400 U.S. faculty and professionals who will travel abroad this year through the Fulbright Senior Specialists program.

Among her international work, Lewis has served as a visiting lecturer in Japan; taught short courses in the Global Legal Studies program at Universidade Catolica Portuguesa in Lisbon, Portugal; and conducted workshops on legal writing for Seoul National University and the Korean Association of Law Schools.
