Aug 22, 2012 | Stegner Center

TAO Lei, Deputy Director and Assistant Professor of the Research Institute of Environment and Resources Law at Hohai University in Nanjing, China, will be a Visiting Research Fellow at the College of Law from August 3, 2012 until August 5, 2013.

With funding provided by the Chinese Scholarship Committee, the College of Law is providing Professor TAO with research space, research privileges and access to office equipment. During her stay in the U.S., she will conduct research on water law and climate change adaptation.  She will also participate in scholarly programs at the College of Law and elsewhere at the U.

“We are truly delighted to host Professor Tao to study U.S. water law, and I hope this will very much be a two-way exchange, said Robert Adler, Professor of Law at the College of Law, and himself a water scholar. “I am very excited to learn more about water law and policy in China, especially as both of our countries confront the very difficult challenges to water management in the face of climate change.”
