Albany Law School will be closed today until 4pm due to the weather.
A delegation from the Shanghai Institute of Foreign Trade (SIFT) in China is currently visiting the Albany Law School campus. For years, the two insitutions have held educational and cultural exchanges for students and faculty.
Professor Cai Jianmin, who teaches at SIFT, has been a visiting scholar at Albany Law for the spring semester, and he is currently teaching the law school's Introduction to Chinese Law course. On April 23, he will conduct a faculty workshop on "The Characteristics of the U.S. Legal Education and its Comparison with Chinese Law School in the Perspective of a Chinese Law Scholar."
Albany Law has an ongoing relationship with SIFT for cooperative educational programs and collaborative research initiatives for students and faculties in both countries. This semester, Albany Law students and faculty members toured China for several days, meeting with alumni in the country, visiting Chinese legal institutions, and attending seminars about Chinese and U.S. law.
In addition to the annual trip to China, Albany Law hosts study tours of SIFT students and faculty each year.
