Professor Thomas P. Gallanis, Allison and Dorothy Rouse Chair in Law at Scalia Law, recently delivered lectures and workshops at the KoGuan Law School of Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU), where he is a chair visiting professor, and to the Faculty of Law of the University of Hong Kong (HKU).

At each of the two law schools, he gave a public lecture on “The Dark Side of Codifying U.S. Trust Law,” based on his forthcoming article of the same title. He also led informal faculty discussions on “Current Challenges in Legal Education and Higher Education.” Additionally, at SJTU he gave a faculty workshop on an early-stage scholarly project, tentatively titled “American Exceptionalism in the Law of Trusts.”

Professor Gallanis recently joined Scalia Law from the University of Iowa, where he held the Allan D. Vestal Chair in Law. He is an internationally renowned expert on trust, succession, property, and fiduciary law. He is particularly interested in their comparative and cross-border aspects. At Scalia Law, he is the executive director of the Global Wealth Management Project. He recently published the Ninth Edition of Family Property Law: Cases and Materials on Wills, Trusts, and Estates.
