King and Wood Mallesons


The Women Lawyers’ Association of NSW in conjunction with the
Asian Australian Lawyers Association, invite you to join us with visiting US-based Professor Frank Wu, voted the most “influential” dean in legal education in a poll by National Jurist magazine.

Frank H. Wu, author, law professor, former law school dean, and head of a prestigious non-profit Chinese American membership organization the Committee of 100, has written widely about reform of legal education and disruption within the profession.

He will talk about opportunities for global law firms in an increasingly international and transnational practice environment, with an ascendant Asia embracing rule of law.

He will consider changes in the structure of the leading law firms, as competition compels the development of new models for delivery of professional services.

He will consider how best to include people of diverse backgrounds to achieve better client services and realize ideals of a democratic society.

He is the author of Yellow: Race in America Beyond Black and White and co-author of Race, Rights and Reparation: Law and the Japanese American Internment. His work has appeared in the New York Times and the Washington Post. He blogs regularly for the Huffington Post.
