Professors Teach and Lecture in China
Professors Tom Wilson and Antony Page strengthened the law school’s ties with China by teaching and lecturing at two Chinese law schools in May and June. Wilson and Page shared the role of resident professor for the Chinese Law Summer Program. The Program is held in Beijing at the Renmin University of China School of Law, which recently announced it was ranked first among China’s law schools. Wilson is Co-Director of the Program, which began in 1987.
While in Beijing, Professors Wilson and Page also delivered lectures to faculty and Ph.D. students in law at the China University of Political Science and Law. Professor Wilson’s lectures were “East Meets West: Contract Formation Problems Common to the U.S. and China,” and “Legal Education for Foreign Students in the U.S.” Professor Page’s presentations were “Progressive Organizational Law: Solutions to What Problems?” and “Failures of Corporate Governance: The Independent Director Solution.” Professor Page also presented the latter work at Renmin University and another work, “Termination Fees, Reverse Termination Fees, and Standards of Review” at the offices of the Jun He law firm in Beijing, with a simulcast to firm offices in Shanghai & Shenzen. Several attorneys in each city earned the LL.M. degree from Indiana University School of Law—Indianapolis.
