Mark Aronchick, Chair of Hangley Aronchick Segal Pudlin & Schiller, has served as a professor in the Temple University-Tsinghua Law School Master of Laws Program over the past year. As part of the program, Aronchick spent six weeks in Beijing, China, teaching Chinese lawyers, officials, and law students about US law.
As part of the program, the students enrolled in the program spent the summer in Philadelphia, learning technical courtroom skills and visiting federal and state courts, crime labs, prisons, and prosecutors’ and public defenders’ offices. Students can also spend a week in a local law firm, getting firsthand experience of how attorneys work in the United States. Hangley Aronchick was proud to host four students for a week, and both attorneys and staff enjoyed learning more about the Chinese legal system and Chinese culture.
The Temple-Tsinghua program, established in 1997 in Beijing, China, educates Chinese judges, prosecutors, government officials, law professors, and lawyers in US and international legal principles. This 15-month program, operating in collaboration with Tsinghua University School of Law, is the first foreign law degree granting program approved by the Chinese Ministry of Education.
