ASEAN Law & Integration Center (ALIC)

     The ASEAN Law & Integration Center (ALIC) at the University of Hawaii William S. Richardson School of Law (UH Richardson Law) responds to the urgent need for continuous top-tier research and capacity building on legal, regulatory, and policy reforms involved in all aspects of ASEAN integration.  It is the only institution in the United States legal academy to date that is specifically dedicated to supporting the analysis, assessment, development, and innovation by the ASEAN Member States in the process of creating and establishing “ASEAN Law”, “ASEAN jurisprudence”, and “ASEAN institutions” for the Southeast Asian single market. 

The ALIC is ideally hosted at the William S. Richardson School of Law – the leading American law school in Pacific-Asian legal studies with the specific pedagogical mandate “to recognize a special responsibility to the Pacific region”.  UH Richardson Law is globally recognized within the top 169 law schools in The Princeton Review as having the United States’ “best environment for minority students”, having one of “the most diverse faculty” in the United States, and the only American law school to offer a Pacific-Asian Legal Studies Certificate for students specializing in the comparative study of law across Asian legal systems of Southeast Asia, China, Japan, Korea, among others.
