IU McKinney Students Take Part in International Forum in Beijing


International Law Student Forum Beijing 2014The fifth annual International Forum for Law Students, with the theme “Law and Justice in a Globalized World,” was held at Renmin University of China Law School on May 24. The Forum was created in 2010 to provide a platform for law students to discuss legal issues important to them. The Forum consisted of four sessions: What Rules? The Regulation of Globalization; Criminal Justice under Globalization; Ethical Issues in Globalization; and National and Regional Interests in Globalization.
