Professors Brian Landsberg and Michael Colatrella will travel to Chengdu, China this week to direct training on experiential legal education from July 26 to August 2 in Chengdu, China.

The week-long workshop is a continuation of the now multi-million grant program first begun in October 2006 under the USAID's Rule of Law in China Initiative. Pacific McGeorge is the leader of a four-school consortium whose mission is to bolster practical legal skills training in Chinese law schools.

This summer's Phase II program follows a December 2009 workshop in Wuhan, China. Landsberg and Colatrella will be joined by professors from American University, Villanova University Law School and Chinese law schools involved in the Phase I program.

The same trainees from the Wuhan workshop will attend the second workshop in Chengdu. They include six professors from each of the following Phase II partner schools in China: Central China University of Science and Technology, North University of Nationalities, Southwest University of Science and Technology, Southwestern University of Finance and Economics and Wuhan University.

Third-year Pacific McGeorge student Jocelyn Blinn, who is serving an internship with a law firm in Guangzhou, will serve as site coordinator.
