International Business Law, Comparative Constitutional Law and Human Rights – from 15 May to 16 June, 16 students from the China-EU School of Law (CESL) are taking part in regular courses in three LL.M. programmes at Central European University (CEU) in Budapest, Hungary. These studies are part of the Master of European and International Law’s elective module. “Five weeks may be short, yet I will fully cherish the experience that we are integrated in the LL.M. courses like any other CEU student,” says student Meng Fanqin. The Chinese students were welcomed by the Chair of the International Business Law programme and CESL Coordinator at CEU, Prof. Tibor Tajti, and CEU faculty and students. One of the CEU professors who are teaching is Prof. J. Clifton Fleming, CEU Visiting Professor of Law and Ernest L. Wilkinson Chair from Brigham Young University in Utah, USA.
