Chinese Environmental Law Scholar in Residence at IU Law-Indianapolis
IU School of Law-Indianapolis' Environmental Law Forum hosted visiting Chinese Lawyer, Wang Xiaohui, this summer while she conducted comparative research on U.S. environmental law through a fellowship provided by Probe International. Xiaohui works with one of the most prominent Chinese Environmental Law organizations, the Center for Legal Assistance to Pollution Victims (CLAPV) in Beijing. She is both a practicing lawyer and a Ph.D. candidate at China University of Political Science and Law, where her dissertation topic relates to environmental law in China.
Xiaohui was in Indianapolis during July and August. While here she had an opportunity to interact with members of the faculty who teach environmental law, Professors Dan Cole and Eric Dannenmaier, and to meet with Professors Tom Wilson and Gerard Magliocca, who co-direct IU-Indy’s China Summer Program. Xiaohui also had the opportunity to meet with practicing lawyers, public interest advocates, and government officials. At the close of her visit, Xiaohui gave a presentation to the faculty on Environment and Health Management in China - discussing the challenges of protecting human health and the environment in the face of enormous development pressures in the world’s largest developing country.
