March 06, 2008

Fordham Law has signed a student exchange agreement with the China University of Political Sciences and Law (CUPL) in Beijing. Under this agreement, Fordham Law J.D. students may study at CUPL's School of American and Comparative Law (SACL)

SACL will offer Fordham students the opportunity to take courses in English or Mandarin while being fully immersed in Chinese culture.

"Our J.D. students will learn side-by-side with their Chinese counterparts with whom they will have the opportunity to develop professional associations and friendships,"  Assistant Dean for International and Non-J.D. Programs Toni M. Fine said.

The agreement was reached after a delegation from CUPL - including President Xu Xianming and Dean and Professor of Law at SACL Stephen Hsu– visited Fordham Law and met with Fordham Law School Dean William Michael TreanorAssociate Dean Matthew Diller, and Director of International Studies Thomas H. Lee

"CUPL is one of the top law schools in the world's fastest growing market," said Dean Treanor. "We have been delighted to have Professor Wei Cui as a visiting faculty member and look forward to continuing our relationship with this institution through our exchange agreement that broadens the opportunities available to students of both Fordham and CUPL."

Professor Wei Cui, a member of SACL's faculty, taught the course "Doing Business in China" while serving as a spring semester visiting international professor at Fordham Law.
