Roy L. Sturgeon accepted a job offer to be the first-ever Foreign and International Law Librarian at Touro College Jacob D. Fuchsberg Law Center in Long Island, New York (one-hour away from New York City). The website is http://www.tourolaw.edu/. He started work on September 25 and will be in charge of maintaining and expanding Touro's foreign and international law collection and services. Also, Touro has a month-long summer program in China. Classes are taught in Xiamen and Hong Kong and students will be able to visit Shanghai, Xian, and Beijing. Because of his recent legal education at Tsinghua University in Beijing, he might teach Chinese law classes in this program either next summer or the summer of 2008 (right before the Beijing Olympics start). It's a great opportunity for him. Roy will live and work back in the New York City area and might even get experience teaching Chinese law in China. Roy considers himself very, very lucky.
