Active Months Ahead for Joint Center for Asian Law Studies
The months of May and June are filled with lots of activity for the Joint Center for Asian Law Studies. Here are some highlights:
- On June 5, the Joint Center sponsored the Second International Law Student Forum at the Renmin University of China Law School in Beijing. The Forum provides an opportunity for law students from China, Japan, Korea, and the U.S. to engage in peer-to-peer discussions about the current state of legal education in each country and to offer insights from their unique perspective as students and as consumers of legal education. A panel of legal educators from each country will offer responses.
- Also on June 5, following the Forum, the Joint Center sponsored a reunion of Chinese alumni of the Indiana University School of Law-Indianapolis. Since 2003, over 100 Chinese nationals have been awarded J.D., LL.M. or SJD degrees from IU-Indy.
- On June 8 and 9, Joint Center Co-Directors, Tom Wilson and Ding Xiangshun, participated in a judicial training conference in Beijing.
- On June 11 and 12, the Joint Center sponsored the Second Sino-U.S. Law Conference. Day one of the Conference, moderated by Professor Wilson, featured presentations by leading U.S. authorities on banking and real estate finance reform. Day two of the Conference, moderated by Professor Ding, featured presentations by Chinese authorities on real estate financing in China.
