Penn Law appoints Douglas Rutzen as Adjunct Professor


As part of a strategic collaboration between ICNL and the University of Pennsylvania Law School (, Doug Rutzen has been appointed an Adjunct Professor. Together with Assistant Dean Adam Kolker, he will develop an innovative cross-disciplinary course on current topics in international civil society law.

Participants will be drawn from among Penn Law’s American law students as well as the overseas-trained lawyers, judges and others who attend its LLM program. The course will add still more perspectives through the inclusion of graduate students from disciplines such as politics, economics, and business management. This is believed to be the first initiative of its kind at any of America’s Ivy League universities.
