Dr Darius Whelan’s visit to Beijing and Shanghai

Dr Darius Whelan, the Law Faculty’s China Liaison, visited Beijing and Shanghai in March, meeting staff and students at our partner universities.  In Shanghai, he visited East China University of Politics and Law (ECUPL), UCC Law Faculty’s exchange partner.  UCC’s BCL (International) students can spend their year abroad at ECUPL.   For a blog post by Ashleigh Hayman about her experiences at ECUPL, see http://blogs.ucc.ie/wordpress/lawinternational/2014/02/20/letter-shanghai/.

Darius also visited Shanghai Academy of Social Sciences (SASS) and Beijing Technology and Business University (BTBU).  Darius met law students at BTBU who are considering studying at UCC, and took the opportunity to inform them of our plans for a new Diploma in Law and Legal English, which we hope to launch later this year.  He also discussed our various taught LLM programmes, such as the LLM (Business Law) and LLM (Intellectual Property and E Law) which are popular with Chinese students.

Students from China interested in studying at UCC are welcome to contact Dr Darius Whelan by email at d.whelan@ucc.ie.
