Professor Wilson Lectures and Builds Relationships in Taiwan
In the first week of January, Professor Tom Wilson established connections between the IU McKinney School of Law and three law schools in Taiwan. Professor Wilson was invited to Providence University by Professor John Wang, Chair of the Department of Law, to deliver two lectures, one on American commercial law and one on opportunities available at the IU McKinney School of Law for foreign professors and students. Providence University is located in Taichung City and traces its history back to 1920 and to Mother Marie Gratia Luking and five Sisters of Providence from St. Mary of The Woods in Indiana
