Professor Woo, a leading expert on the Anglo-American legal system and the Chinese socialist legal system, teaches Civil Procedure, Administrative Law and Comparative Law. She is a former fellow of the Bunting Institute (Radcliffe College) and is presently an associate of the East Asian Legal Studies Program at Harvard University. She has received many prestigious grants from a variety of organizations, including the National Science Foundation and the Ford Foundation, and is on the Senior Scholar Roster for the Fulbright Scholars Program. In 2015, she served as an invited visiting researcher at the Max Planck Institute in Luxembourg. In 2018, she was selected for a Fulbright Specialist award. Under the Fulbright auspices, she is partnering with faculty at the University of Florence in Italy to develop a series of comparative law seminars at the University of Florence that address the changing landscape of international cooperation over the past year, including BREXIT, multi-lateral treaties, and ongoing political developments in the US and Europe that, as a whole, suggest further withdrawals from international law institutions, comparative law projects and multi-lateral institutions may be imminent.
