A group of 32 media representatives and educators from China and Taiwan will be guests of the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa on Tuesday, February 6, including making a visit to the UH law school.

Chinese-speaking law students Tsui "Ariel" Min and Brandon Singleton will join a welcoming delegation that includes Dean Avi Soifer and retired Professor Larry Foster, a specialist in Chinese law, for the two-and-a-half-hour event in the Moot Court Room.

It’s all part of an educational tour sponsored by Study Hawaiʻi and the Hawai‘i Department of Business, Economic Development and Tourism designed to explore educational opportunities in the state. The tour, titled “Hawai‘i: The Best Classroom in the World," will showcase some of the outstanding programs and departments at UH as part of its agenda.

Presentations will be given by the Shidler College of Business, Department of Engineering, Travel Industry Management, the Center for Chinese Studies' Confucius Institute, and by UH officials handling admissions.

Visitors will also hear about the law school’s advanced degree programs – the LLM, AJD and SJD – which are open to Chinese students. Additionally, on Friday, the group will visit the John A. Burns School of Medicine.

Spencer Kimura, a faculty specialist and the director of LLM and Summer Programs, is handling arrangements for the law school.
