Introducing Holning Lau

Lau Headshot copyI am delighted to welcome Holning Lau, Professor of Law and Associate Dean for Faculty Development at the University of North Carolina School of Law, who will be blogging with us this month.  Professor Lau’s current research examines international and comparative approaches to issues of gender and sexuality. He is working on projects that focus on the European Union (supported by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Programme), Hong Kong (supported by a grant from the University of Hong Kong), and South Africa (supported by competitive grants from UNC). He is also putting final touches on an essay that draws on his own experiences with fatherhood to examine public policy proposals concerning parenting, including proposals for the United States to adopt Nordic-style laws that govern workplace parental leaves.

Prior to joining the faculty at UNC, Prof. Lau was an Associate Professor and Co-Director of the LGBT Rights Fellowship Program at Hofstra University School of Law. Before that, he was a Fellow at UCLA’s Williams Institute. He has also held visiting fellowships at the University of Hong Kong’s Centre for Comparative and Public Law.

His selected publications include:
