About the Speaker
Ambassador Morse H. Tan served as the first Asian-American Ambassador at Large in U.S. history. A unique position in world history, Ambassador at Large for Global Criminal Justice Tan pursued preventative, mitigating and accountability-seeking justice throughout the world for mass atrocity crimes: genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes. The top policy position in the entire U.S. government in this area, Ambassador Tan advanced this mission in places such as Rwanda, Kosovo, Syria, Burma, China, Iraq, Guatemala, Sri Lanka, Nagorno-Karabakh, North Korea, Sudan, Lebanon, and El Salvador.
The foremost legal scholar on North Korea, Ambassador Tan published “North Korea, International Law and the Dual Crises” (Routledge) and more law review articles on this subject than any other scholar. Named “Korean-American of the Year” and an Emerging Leader by the Chicago Council on Global Affairs, he has participated in a range of media engagements, such as the National Law Journal and United Press International (UPI). His speaking invitations include Cornell Law School, the Tiffany Memorial Lecture and the National Press Club.
Ambassador Tan has worked in legal academia for close to two decades. His journey in legal academia began as a founding faculty member at the first American Juris Doctor program in Asia, Handong International Law School. Ambassador Tan has served as a visiting scholar at Northwestern University Pritzker School of Law and the University of Texas Law School, and Professor of Law at Northern Illinois University College of Law, and he currently serves as Dean at Liberty University School of Law.
