A two-week criminal law course comparing China's criminal justice system with that of the United States. The course will cover the Chinese Constitution, the criminal code, and the code of criminal procedure. Students are required to participate in daily one-on-one half-hour Chinese language training - no academic credit - to help them prepare for their daily experiences. The program ends in Xiamen and then the group proceeds to Shanghai for two nights and departs from there.
