Professors Wilson and Ding Organize Reunion of Chinese Alumni
Over 120 Chinese nationals have earned degrees at the IU Robert H. McKinney School of Law since May 2003. Professors Tom Wilson and Ding Xiangshun (LL.M. ‘06, visiting professor at IU McKinney School of Law in 2012, and Renmin University of China Law school Professor of Law and Assistant Dean for Foreign Affairs) set out in the fall of 2011 to form an IU Robert H. McKinney School of Law Alumni Association in China. With the hard work of an organizing committee, which included alumni Annie Liu (LL.M. ’04), Hongbin Bao (LL.M. ’04; J.D. ’07), Sabrina Zeng (LL.M. ’06), Wei Yang (LL.M. ’07), Feng Tian (LL.M. ’07), Zhenfeng Yan (LL.M. ’06), and Leng Shuai (LL.M. ’07), an overflow crowd met in Beijing on May 27, 2012. Attendees included alumni who had received their degrees only two weeks earlier at commencement ceremonies in Indianapolis. Alumni renewed friendships, established connections, and enjoyed exchanging memories of the time they spent at IU McKinney Law. According to Prof. Wilson, planning already has begun for the 2013 Alumni Reunion.
