Dean Extends Ties With Peking University Law School

Fall 2013

Columbia Law School Dean David M. Schizer and Peking University Law School Dean Zhang Shouwen signed a memorandum of understanding earlier this year to extend the longtime partnership between the two schools. Since 2006, Columbia Law School and Peking University Law School, which is based in Beijing, have hosted study-abroad programs at their respective campuses, and in 2011, the two schools began a faculty exchange program. The new agreement encourages collaboration on mutually agreed upon research, as well as cooperation in the training of international law students. It also allows for future joint publications, seminars, and forums.
