Earlier this month, the DeKalb County Magistrate Court hosted four students from China who recently completed their Master of Comparative Law Program at Emory Law, according to a county press release.
The students volunteered for a three-day “internship” where they had the chance to take a tour, observe court and shadow judges within the criminal, ordinance and civil divisions of the magistrate court.
“My court was honored to host these law students from China,” Chief Magistrate Judge Berryl A. Anderson said. “Our judges and the students had a unique opportunity to learn from each other during their time in magistrate court.”
Emory currently offers the Master of Comparative Law Program in partnership with Shanghai Jiao Tong University—KoGuan Law School, which provides students an opportunity to engage in a one-year legal education experience, including comparing legal systems and practices between the People’s Republic of China and the U.S., the release said.
