Who is Charles H. Koch Jr.?
Professor Charles H. Koch Jr. was a professor of law at the College of William & Mary from 1979 until his passing in 2012. Professor Koch's areas of expertise included administrative law, comparative constitutional systems, electricity, the European Union, and federal courts. While he primarily focused on U.S. administrative law, he began learning and teaching about the European Union because he saw its growing importance both to the U.S. in the global legal environment and ultimately to domestic law.
 
He received his B.A. from the University of Maryland, his J.D. from George Washington University and his LL.M. from the University of Chicago. Prior to joining the William & Mary faculty in 1979, he worked as a staff attorney in the Office of the General Counsel of the Federal Trade Commission and taught at DePaul University College of Law. He served as Assistant Chief Reporter of the ABA's Administrative Law of the European Union Project and was Past President of the Committee on Sections and Annual Meetings of the Administrative Law Section of the Association of American Law Schools. He was a member of the ABA's United Nations Affairs Coordinating Committee. He also served for seven years as Editor-in-Chief of the Administrative Law Review and twice acted as a consultant to the Administrative Conference of the United States.
 
Professor Koch was a prolific writer, publishing books for both teaching and practice, and numerous articles in law reviews and practitioner-oriented journals. His books included Administrative Law and Practice (2d ed.), Administrative Law of the European Union, Volume 1 (with George Bermann), Federal Practice and Procedure Volumes 32 and 33 (with Charles Alan Wright), Administrative Law: Cases and Materials (5th ed., with William Jordan & Richard Murphy), West's Federal Administrative Practice, Volume 7, The Federal Administrative Judiciary (with Paul Verkuil, Daniel Gifford, Richard Pierce and Jeffrey Lubbers) and Fundamentals of Administrative Practice (with Donald Rothschild).
 
He is survived by his wife, Denise, and his son, Andrew (COL '12).

Summer Program Offered in South Korea (2017)

I am a faculty here at UVA (https://med.virginia.edu/faculty/faculty-listing/zf3s/). I am leading a summer faculty-led program at Hanyang University in Seoul, South Korea (http://www.hanyangsummer.com/) that spans the month of July, 2017.  I am recruiting students to attend this program now.

Students who participate in this program by taking my Principles of Nutrition course can receive a 45% tuition discount. The tuition also covers other 2 courses and 4 free actives in Seoul. So far, I got approval from our study abroad office for this program, but they cant help me to advertise this program, because of the late notice from Hanyang University. I am wondering if you could me spread the word to your students. It will be a great opportunity for students who are be interested in experiencing Asian countries.

Thanks,

Zhuo
