Albany Law School will be closed today until 4pm due to the weather.
Thirty-three Albany Law School students, as well as Associate Dean Patricia Salkin, Associate Dean for Student Affairs Alicia Ouellette, Professor Robert Batson, and Professor Danshera Cords, are traveling for 10 days this month in China to learn about commercial and business law issues between the China and the United States.
As a supplement to formal classroom instruction, the students will visit Chinese courts, government offices, U.S.-based law firms and corporate offices in Beijing and Shanghai. The students will also meet with Albany Law alumni practicing in China.
Albany Law has also hosted Chinese law students and advisors from the Shanghai Institute of Foreign Trade (SIFT) after signing an agreement in 2010 to pursue cooperative educational programs and collaborative research initiatives for students and faculties in both countries.
Chinese students visiting Albany Law learned about U.S. law from the law school's professors, and they also visited the U.S. Court of Appeals, Albany City Hall and the New York State Capitol. Albany Law has also hosted visiting scholars from SIFT.
