Visiting PhD Student at UBC: Sodnom DOLJIN

S DOLJIN arrived in Vancouver this week to spend a year here at UBC as a visiting scholar at the Centre for Asian Legal Studies.

Doljin is a PhD student in Law at Soongsil Univ in South Korea. While here at UBC, she will be continuing the work on her dissertation which is focused on international arbitration and dispute resolution. The on-going negotiations for a Foreign Investment Protection Agreement (FIPA) between Canada and Mongolia make this topic particularly interesting.

I hope that we’ll see her regularly here at the Institute of Asian Research and perhaps get her to contribute to this blog as well.
