In early November, students from the Law School of Jilin University (JLU) completed the "UMD-Jilin University Professional Development Workshop 2019," a two-week training program held at the University of Maryland. The Office of International and Executive Programs (OIEP) organized the workshops, which focused on a variety of law-related topics including the U.S. criminal justice system, law and society, and defining national identity.
In addition to academic presentations, trainees participated in site visits and tours at venues throughout the Maryland-Washington, DC region; these activities supplemented in-class presentations and also gave the JLU students opportunities to experience aspects of America's diverse culture.
Upon finishing the cycle of workshops, each participant received a certificate of completion signed by Dr. Gregory F. Ball, dean of UMD's College of Behavioral and Social Sciences (BSOS).
