YLS Dean Harold Hongju Koh Joining “Yale Week in Mexico”

Yale Law School Dean Harold Hongju Koh will travel to Mexico with Yale University colleagues for “Yale Week in Mexico” March 20 to March 23. The purpose of the trip is to raise the profile of Yale University with business, civic, and university leaders as well as with prospective students. Dean Koh will join History Professor Paul Kennedy, Chemical and Biomedical Engineering Professor Mark Saltzman, and Yale School of Management Senior Associate Dean for Executive Programs Jeffrey Sonnenfeld in delivering public lectures. The Yale Whiffenpoofs, Yale’s oldest a-capella music group originally founded in 1909, will perform several concerts.

In addition to training leaders of Mexican society such as the former president of Mexico Ernesto Zedillo, Yale has made Mexico—and Latin America in general—the subject of much academic attention.  The University has also embarked on a number of collaborative programs with partners in Mexico and across Latin America.

“Yale Week in Mexico 2007” is sponsored by the Yale Club de Mexico, with assistance from the Yale Office of International Affairs.
