On July 2, 2016, a group of 35 students from the Law School of Beijing Normal University went to the Emory University Summer Exchange Program in the United States. Under the leadership of two team leaders, Teacher Chai Rong and Zuo Jianwei, they embarked on a flight to Atlanta. A one-month study life.
At Emory University Law School, students studied the US Constitution, contract law, property law, intellectual property law, human rights law, and criminal law. The students gradually overcome the language barriers, from the beginning of the strange to the last fluent communication, improved their English reading ability; and in the last week under the guidance of the teacher launched a mock court debate, the students felt in it The glamour of intense debate and inquiry in the Anglo-American courts found loopholes in logic, raised questions, argued opinions, and greatly exercised their ability to think logically.
The students' study was not limited to the classroom. In the spare time, the local teacher Rhanni led us to visit the local procuratorate, court, and law firm. In the communication with defense lawyers, prosecutors and judges, they can feel their professionalism and personal charm as legal persons.
In his spare time, the students also visited the Martin Luther King Memorial Hall. At that time, the black movement was alive. We also felt the contradictions of American society in close quarters. When we visited the Jimmy Carter Presidential Museum, we showed President Carter’s life story through a lot of details. Let us also feel that there are many museums in the United States, and we are also thinking about the need to strengthen the protection of celebrities in China. When we visited the Coca-Cola Museum, we were amazed at the advanced management methods of the world's top companies and the ideas of customers everywhere. When I watched the baseball game at home in Atlanta, I felt the American people's love for sports and the development of American professional sports.
After the end of Atlanta's study, we flew to Washington, DC, to visit a series of famous attractions, and also experienced a fierce American election through the TV network.
