West Virginia University, Department of Public Administration (WV, USA), gLAWcal – Global Law Initiatives for Sustainable Development (United Kingdom) have set up a Summer Institute in China – Executive Education Training Program to be held in Beijing (China) with two parallel curricula to be held in two different terms.

This program is organized in partnership with University of Calgary Law School (Canada), University of Provence Aix Marseille I – CNRS Centre of Comparative Epistemology and Ergology (France), Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (Spain), University of Eastern Piedmont Faculty of Economics (Italy), University of Pavia, Faculty of Law (Italy), University of Verona, Department of Law  (Italy) (See: https://paolofarah.wordpress.com/summer-schools-in-china)

This program is multidisciplinary and is aimed at students, young graduates and senior professionals with a background in law, political sciences, international relations, philosophy, economics, environmental sciences, engineering and any other relevant discipline that can be related to the topics of the program.

The first curriculum is called “Summer Institute on Climate Change and Environmental Protection” (SICCEP) or more precisely Law, Policy, Economics and Technology on Climate Change and Environmental issues: European and Chinese Perspectives. It addresses issues such as energy policies, environment law and sustainable development, intellectual property and technology innovation. The second curriculum is called “Summer Institute on Intellectual Property Rights and China(IP-China). The participants (students and professionals) who will enroll in all the scheduled courses and seminars will receive the certificates for both curricula. It is an innovative program that takes into account the training demands of young professionals on these issues, drawing on relevant curricula received from international organizations and the private sector.

Previous editions of the program and both the curricula were approved by the Italian National Bar Association (Rome) with 24 credits valid for lawyers and practicing lawyers.

For undergraduate and graduate students, based on the number of hours of lecturers, preparatory academic materials and practical activities, this summer school is equivalent at least to one semester program.

1) Introduction to Chinese Law, Institutions & Politics – IP-CHINA and SICCEP curricula
