Arizona Law Welcomes First “VAPs” - Visiting Assistant Professors

For the next two academic years, two Visiting Assistant Professors (VAPs) will be teaching at the Rogers College of Law. Shun-Ling Chen will teach International Intellectual Property Law and Jason Kreag will teach Criminal Law.

The VAP program brings legal educators and researchers who are relatively early in their careers to Arizona Law for two-year terms. During this time, they serve as members of the faculty, teaching one course each semester, conducting research, and producing legal scholarship. Dean Marc Miller notes that, “The Visiting Assistant Professor model is increasingly popular at U.S. law schools, as a way to nurture rising stars in legal education. For the active scholarly community at Arizona Law this is a perfect fit.”

Prof. Chen earned her LL.B. and LL.M. from National Taiwan University and her LL.M. and S.J.D. from Harvard Law School. She is a co-founder of Creative Commons Taiwan, a counterpart to the U.S.-based Creative Commons, which prepares free, easy-to-use copyright licenses for Taiwanese authors, artists, and educators.

Prof. Kreag holds a B.A. in economics from DePauw University, an M.A. in philanthropic studies from Indiana University-Indianapolis, and a J.D. from Harvard Law School. He worked as a staff attorney at the Southern Center for Human Rights before joining the Innocence Project, where he was a staff attorney and adjunct clinical professor of law.
