Visiting Chinese Scholars
One of the important factors behind Michigan Law's success as a center for the study of Chinese law is the large population of scholars from Greater China who visit Ann Arbor for advanced research, and are therefore available to interact with non-China-origin Michigan Law students. Indeed, for more than 100 years, Michigan Law has been a place where Chinese scholars, practitioners, and legislative drafters have encountered the American, European, and Japanese legal traditions as the Chinese world seeks to craft its own modern legal order, thereby enriching immeasurably the experience and scholarship of JD and LLM students.

With the end of CLEEC in the 1990s, Michigan continues to be a key destination for China's top law scholars. In the past five years, the Law School has welcomed the likes of: Tsinghua Law School Professor Zhu Ciyun (a key drafter of China's Company Law); East China University of Politics and Law Professor Li Xiuqing (Secretary General of the Chinese Foreign Legal History Association and editor-in-chief of East China University of Politics and Law Journal); Vice Dean of National Taiwan University Law School Sheng-lin Jan; East China University of Politics and Law President He Qinhua; Jiaotong University KoGuan Law School Dean Ji Weidong; and China People's University corporate law expert, Liu Junhai. In the 2010-11 academic year alone, the Law School welcomed six resident scholars, one resident SJD, and 11 LLMs from Greater China.
