Jerry Kang

Bio

Jerry Kang is Professor of Law at UCLA School of Law. He is also Professor of Asian American Studies (by courtesy) at UCLA, and the inaugural Korea Times — Hankook Ilbo Chair in Korean American Studies. Professor Jerry Kang’s teaching and research interests include civil procedure, race, and communications. On race, he has focused on the nexus between implicit bias and the law, with the goal of advancing a “behavioral realism” that imports new scientific findings from the mind sciences into legal discourse and policymaking. He is also an expert on Asian American communities, and has written about hate crimes, affirmative action, the Japanese American internment, and its lessons for the “War on Terror.” He is a co-author of Race, Rights, and Reparation: The Law and the Japanese American Internment (Aspen 2001).
