Kudos to Lan Cao

A favored feature at ImmigrationProf blog, "Immigrant of the Day," provides glimpses of individuals who've come to and enriched life in the United States. A recent worthy honoree is Lan Cao (right). International law professor at Marshall-Wythe School of Law at the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia, she came to the United States as a teenager, having grown up in wartorn Vietnam. Cao's the author of a host of law review articles in her specialization, economic globalization, ethnicity, and Asia; co-author with Himilce Novas of Everything You Need to Know About Asian American History (rev. ed. 2004); and author of a semi-autobiographical novel, Monkey Bridge (1997).
Am honored to have Professor Cao as a colleague on the Executive Council of the American Society of International Law.
Heartfelt congratulations!
