A Lesson from the Chinese Law Summer Program: Don’t Make “the Best” an Enemy of “the Better”

During one of the lectures during the Chinese Law Summer Program, Professor He Jiahong talked in-depth about the evolution of criminal procedure in China over the past 40 years.

2012 Oxford Summer Program

I just returned from Oxford, and I can’t stop thinking about it. It was by far one of the best summers of my life.

China’s capital city is an enigma, home to both ancient and modern China, not to mention more than 22 million permanent residents and a “floating population” of another 10 million or so migrant workers.
