According to a press release on the law school's website, the school has established a Korea Law Center to "promote practical solutions to problems arising at the intersection of U.S. and Korean law" as part of the larger UC Irvine International Commerce & Law institute.
'We intend our Korea Law Center to be the first of several international branches of our UC Irvine International Commerce & Law Institute, the goal of which is to foster international cooperation among the business, legal and educational communities on several continents — so far, Europe, North America and Asia,' said UCI School of Law Dean Erwin Chemerinsky."
Chemerinsky goes further to say that no "other American law school has a business and law institute with a comparable international reach.”
Correct me if I'm wrong, but no school will have that international reach until UC Irvine has established all the partnerships it intends to establish. One partnership with South Korea does not equal widespread "international reach," at least not yet.
Guess UC Irvine didn't get the hyperbole memo, which was so awesome that anything that would have qualified as awesome before is only mediocre now.
