I'm pleased to announce that the number of tenured/tenure-track positions in Chinese law at US law schools has increased by one, with the hiring this year by the University of Michigan Law School of Nicholas Howson (hereinafter "Nico") as an assistant professor. Nico was for many years an attorney at Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison, becoming a partner in 1996. He also served as managing partner of the firm's Beijing office. Congratulations to Michigan for making such a fine hire!
