Wu will maintain an office at the school through March and will be doing research on the role of arbitration in business law disputes. Ammons has invited him to attend all School of Law faculty development programs and he will also do a presentation of his own to the faculty, likely on the subject of legal culture and Taiwan arbitration law.

Wu is a professor of law and director of the Center for Financial and Economic Law Studies at National Taipei University in Taiwan. He earned a doctoral degree from National Taiwan University College of Law in 1992, and while pursuing that degree studied at the University of Vienna for a year. More recently, Wu has studied law at Georgetown University and the University of Munich.

Plans for his visit to Widener have been coordinated through the school’s Institute of Delaware Corporate and Business Law. The institute offers students a formal concentration focused on developing a fundamental knowledge of business and corporate law. Law students enrolled in the institute program earn a business organizations law certificate upon graduation by participating in the business organizations law concentration.

“We are pleased to have Professor Wu on our Delaware campus and to make our many resources available for his research,” Law Dean Linda L. Ammons said. “His presence here enriches our faculty and students and adds a valuable and diverse perspective on legal education.”
