Twenty judges from the Nanjing, China, People's Intermediate Court attended a two-week training program at the University of Baltimore School of Law earlier in October. The group explored the American judicial system and civil procedure, the role of judges in civil matters, and other elements that affect the judicial process.
The program, "Civil Proceedings: The Good Faith Doctrine and the Supervision Mechanism," showed the Chinese judges the various tools that judges in civil matters have at their disposal in order to ensure the integrity of a given case. The delegation was headed by Judge Wang Ping and included eight women and 12 men. During their time here, the group also visited the Maryland Courts of Appeal, the United States Naval Academy, the U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland, and the Federal Judicial Center in Washington, D.C.
Members of the University of Baltimore School of Law full-time and adjunct faculty served as instructors for the training program. This training is a part of the UB School of Law's international law programming that includes its longstanding Center for International and Comparative Law, the LL.M. in the Law of the United States degree program and study abroad programs.
