Indiana University Maurer School of Law and China University of Political Science and Law have signed a cooperation agreement establishing a new Academy for the Study of Chinese Law and Comparative Judicial Systems.

IU President Michael A. McRobbie and China University of Political Science and Law Vice President Baosheng Zhang signed the agreement Thursday in Beijing. McRobbie is in the country working on several initiatives. He also expects to sign or renew agreements with Tsinghua University and Beijing Sport University as well as open a new IU gateway office in Beijing.

“The new academy will foster lecture and research exchanges among leading faculty at both Indiana University and China University of Political Science and Law,” said Austen L. Parrish, dean of the Maurer School of Law and the James H. Rudy Professor of Law. “Regardless of where they practice, today’s lawyers need to understand the impact of globalization on our profession, particularly with respect to China and its growing and dynamic economy. The academy will be a tremendous asset, and we are proud to be partnering with one of the finest law schools in China.”

The academy will be affiliated with China University of Political Science and Law’s Collaborative Innovation Center of Judicial Civilization.

The announcement was part of an IU delegation’s 15-day trip to five Asian countries.

  1. Hail to our Constitutional Law Expert in the Executive Office! “What you’re not paying attention to is the fact that I just took an action to change the law,” Obama said.

  2. What is this, the Ind Supreme Court thinking that there is a separation of powers and limited enumerated powers as delegated by a dusty old document? Such eighteen century thinking, so rare and unwanted by the elites in this modern age. Dictate to us, dictate over us, the massess are chanting! George Soros agrees. Time to change with times Ind Supreme Court, says all President Snows. Rule by executive decree is the new black.

  3. I made the same argument before a commission of the Indiana Supreme Court and then to the fedeal district and federal appellate courts. Fell flat. So very glad to read that some judges still beleive that evidentiary foundations matter.

  4. KUDOS to the Indiana Supreme Court for realizing that some bureacracies need to go to the stake. Recall what RWR said: "No government ever voluntarily reduces itself in size. Government programs, once launched, never disappear. Actually, a government bureau is the nearest thing to eternal life we'll ever see on this earth!" NOW ... what next to this rare and inspiring chopping block? Well, the Commission on Gender and Race (but not religion!?!) is way overdue. And some other Board's could be cut with a positive for State and the reputation of the Indiana judiciary.

  5. During a visit where an informant with police wears audio and video, does the video necessary have to show hand to hand transaction of money and narcotics?
