The University of Massachusetts has been awarded a $1.6 million grant from the United States Agency for International Development (US AID) for a three year project to improve the quality of justice in China through enhanced Judicial Education. The award was made under the "US-China University Collaboration on Rule of Law Program" (USAID-RDMA/A-China-486-07-017-RFA) issued by USAID/Bangkok.
This new project builds upon eight years of successful prior rule of law programming by the University of Massachusetts and the Massachusetts Judges Conference in China. The earlier projects have included, among other innovative approaches, mock trials in six cities in China utilizing Massachusetts law, Massachusetts Judges and Massachusetts judicial procedure and a similar mock trial held at the Suffolk County Courthouse in Boston using Chinese law, judges, and procedures.
