Outside of academia, his advocacy work in recent years has included serving as a human rights consultant to the International Commission of Jurists (2018-2019) and as president of the ACLU of North Carolina (2013-2015). He has also served as an associate dean at UNC School of Law (2016-2018). Professor Lau will discuss his career path.
