Pamela Katz, J.D., professor of legal studies and political science, spent fall 2018 as a visiting scholar with the University of Malawi’s Chancellor College Law Faculty, and early 2019 delivering law lectures at several law schools throughout India.
She taught comparative constitutional law in Malawi; spoke on human rights at the National University of Advanced Legal Studies, Government Law College and Central University in Kerala, India; and spoke on human rights and technology at Christ University and Vivekananda College of Law in Bangalore, India. She is now completing an article comparing fundamental rights and judicial discretion in India and the United States for an Indian law journal.
Katz was a Fulbright Scholar in Vietnam during the 2012-2013 academic year, and has also taught in Spain, China and Japan. She said her Fulbright Network and other international contacts led her to the opportunities in Malawi and India this academic year.
“There’s never a deficit of things to share with my Sage students when I return from these trips,” said Katz. “India is a superpower waiting in the wings, and what really struck me in Malawi is how advanced their law prep is for a developing country. I met a lot of wonderful people waiting to lead, whose experiences will inspire Sage students.”
