China Law Center Deputy Director Jamie Horsley and Yale Law School Professor John Simon visited Beijing in mid-September to help launch China's first Non-Profit Organizations Legal Clinic, being taught by Peking University Law School's Professor Jin Jinping. The clinical part with students working with Chinese non-profit organizations (NPOs) will start after the students have completed the first month of the basic class on Chinese NPO Law. Professor Jin has attracted more than 20 registered law students, and the class is open to students from other disciplines and universities. Professor Simon, who teaches nonprofit law and runs a year-round NPO Clinic at Yale Law School, which Professor Jin took when she was a Visiting Scholar at Yale and through which she assisted an educational NPO obtain federal tax exemption, gave a series of lectures on NPO law and issues in the United States.
