Chinese law students visit Courts in Baltimore City and Baltimore County

A group of law students and law school graduates from China spent two weeks this past summer (2014) observing and learning in Baltimore City and Baltimore County Circuit Courts. The visitors spent time with judges in each jurisdiction, and learned about American law, the Maryland judicial system, and court procedures and cases. The students and graduates broke into two groups, alternating weeks in Baltimore and Baltimore County.

Court of Special Appeals Judge Deborah Sweet Eyler was the coordinator for the visit, with assistance from Third Circuit Administrative Judge Kathleen G. Cox (Baltimore and Harford counties) and Eighth Circuit Administrative Judge W. Michel Pierson (Baltimore City). The program ran July 21-August 1.
