Renmin University Visitors Get Glimpse of US Legal System

“insights into us law” program popular with chinese

Boston College Law School hosted its second annual “Insights into US Law” program last summer, welcoming to campus sixteen Renmin University School of Law members—double the number from the previous year.

Intended to expose the Chinese participants to aspects of the United States legal
system, the program took place in various locations across Boston College. Lectures covered a broad range of topics, from International Entrepreneurship to Bioethics and the Law.

The lectures were led by BC Law faculty members Judy McMorrow, Joan Blum, Gregory Stoller, David Wirth, Thomas Barnico, Paul Tremblay, Gregory Kalscheur, Ray Madoff, Charles Baron, Joseph Liu, Mark Spiegel, Paulo Barrozo, Alexis Anderson, Gail Hupper, and Daniel Lyons.

The program included discussion sessions, tours of Boston, the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court, and Harvard University and Law School, and a meeting with the Hon. John Cratsley from the Massachusetts Superior Court.

“We’re very pleased with the success of the program,” said Professor Judy McMorrow, who founded Insights. “There’s a lot of interest from Renmin colleagues in the US legal system, as well as the city of Boston. We’re glad to be able to share some of these insights and to learn from them in the process.”
