Summer is a time when many NYU Law professors fan out from Washington Square to engage with the global academic community. During the summer of 2017, faculty members participated in lectures and conferences, conducted research, and shared their expertise on six continents. Their appearances are plotted on an interactive map, which you can find embedded below or in a full-screen version here.

A scan of the map gives a sense of the breadth of locations visited. And by clicking on the purple map pins, you can read details about individual appearances. The left-hand panel allows navigation by faculty name. 

A few examples from the 110 pins you’ll find on this year’s map: Assistant Professor of Law Emiliano Catan and Charles L. Denison Professor of Law Harry First made separate visits to the University of Tokyo, where First taught a course on competition law and Catan was a discussant at the Global Corporate Governance Colloquia Conference. Norma Z. Paige Professor of Law Jennifer Arlen and Beller Family Professor of Business Law Kevin Davis jointly participated in the Corporate Liability for Corruption Conference at the Universidad de Buenos Aires Law School. And closer to home, Professor Erin Murphy went to Big Sky, Montana, for the 2017 Conference of State Solicitors and Criminal Appellate Chiefs, and Laurence A. Tisch Professor of Law Richard Epstein lectured at the Hoover Institution Working Group on Intellectual Property, Innovation, and Prosperity at Stanford University.
