UBC Faculty of Law Welcomes Dr. Galit Sarfaty
Galit A. Sarfaty
The Faculty of Law at UBC is pleased to welcome its newest faculty member, Galit A. Sarfaty, who will begin in her new role as Assistant Professor on July 1, 2012.
Dr. Sarfaty earned an A.B. in Anthropology (summa cum laude) from Harvard University, M.A. and Ph.D. degrees in Anthropology from the University of Chicago, and a J.D. from Yale Law School. Prior to joining UBC, she served as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Legal Studies and Business Ethics at the Wharton School of Business, University of Pennsylvania. She is also an affiliated faculty member in the Program on the Legal Profession at Harvard Law School.
Dr. Sarfaty's subject areas are public and private international law, with particular focus in the areas of international economic law, human rights law, and regulatory governance. She has also done work in the area of aboriginal law. Dr. Sarfaty is especially concerned with organizational behavior and culture as these intersect with the law. Her research has focused on such major international economic organizations as the World Bank, and she has recently published a book on the subject entitled Values in Translation: Human Rights and the Culture of the World Bank (Stanford, 2012). Dr. Sarfaty's work is strongly interdisciplinary, and we look forward to the unique perspective she will bring to the study of law at UBC.
