Director, Program in Refugee and Asylum Law, University of Michigan Law School
James C. Hathaway is the founding director of the University of Michigan’s innovative Program in Refugee and Asylum Law, in which students have the opportunity to study refugee law from international, comparative, and interdisciplinary perspectives. Hathaway has been a visiting professor at the Universities of Cairo, California, and Tokyo.
