Professor Wilson Invited to Speak at the National Judges College of the PRC
Professor Tom Wilson was an invited speaker at the International Forum on Judicial Training, held on June 8 & 9, 2011, in Beijing, China. The Forum was sponsored by the National Judges College of the Peoples Republic of China, the United Nations Development Program—China, and the European Union-China Project of Governance for Equitable Development. The Forum was convened to enable China to analyze its judicial training procedures and to learn about methods used in other nations to train judges and maintain judicial competence. Professor Wilson joined speakers from Australia, France, Germany, Japan, and Korea. Professor Wilson’s presentation focused on both the informal and non-systematic path to the bench in the U.S. and the formal and systematic training mechanisms available after election or appointment.
