Duquesne students law study in China this summer

Thursday, June 7, 2018

Several Duquesne Law students are participating in a study abroad program in China this summer. Bridget Kearney, Mariah Mandy, Danielle Mrdjenovich, Sarah Linder, and Alaina Coury spent a week in late May/early June studying Comparative Issues in Criminal Law in Beijing with Professor John Rago. The students also visited the Summer Palace, Forbidden City, Tienneman Square, Great Wall of China, and other sites before flying to the city of Chengdu in the Sichuan province of China with Professor Rona Kaufman to continue their studies. 

In Chengdu, the group met with professors and students of Xihua University, studied Comparative Family Law, and toured the city.

The students will continue to study and travel in the country, next spending several days in Shanghai and then travel to the city of Hongzhou. 

Kaufman and the students return to Pittsburgh on June 14, 2018.
