Professor Gruner led a group of John Marshall students and practicing lawyers to Beijing in the summer of 2008 as part of John Marshall’s Chinese IP Law Study Tour. This tour involved two weeks of instruction at the John Marshall campus in Chicago and an additional 11 days at Peking University Law School. At Peking University, the John Marshall students received additional instruction and participated in joint discussions with Peking University law students on comparative methods for enforcing IP rights in Chinese and American courts.



     In this third installment of the month-long summer intellectual property law program, the 2010 China IP Summer Program was available to all law students and practitioners after the program was accredited by the American Bar Association in 2009. As such, law students from Fordham University School of Law, Touro College Jacob D. Fuchsberg Law Center, and Northern Kentucky University Salmon P. Chase College of Law participated in 2010.
