McGeorge is justly proud of its wide array of international law electives, many taught by distinguished foreign visitors.

Professor Kine Camara, who teaches at the Cheikh Anta Diop University in Senegal, taught a short course, "The African System of Human Rights Protection," from March 5 through 16, 2012.

Thirteen J.D. students and four LLM in Transnational Business Practice students took advantage of the opportunity to get an in-depth African perspective on an issue that transcends the continents. It was Camara's second visit to the Sacramento law school campus. She spoke on "Modern Law and Women's Rights in Senegal: From the Shelter of Indigenous Law into the Rain" in January 2011.

Camara received undergraduate and law degrees from universities in France. She also holds a Ph.D. in International Commercial Arbitration. Her colleague at Cheikh Anta Diop University, Professor Moussa Samb, taught a course on African Business Laws in February 2011.

Earlier this semester, Dutch attorney Winfried van den Muijsenbergh and Chicago-based international practitioner Eric Fogel co-taught a course on International Business Agreements.
