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.
