The China Law Center Mourns the Loss of Friend and Former Visiting Scholar Professor Zhou Wei
Professor Zhou was deeply engaged in the ongoing process of China's legal reforms, and his intellect and practical wisdom made him a leader in his generation of Chinese legal scholars who are contributing so much to advance legal knowledge and legal reforms in China. Among many projects and achievements, Professor Zhou inspired and directed a groundbreaking cooperative project with the China Law Center to advance bail reform in China. He had many friends and admirers outside of China, and we at Yale Law School in the United States feel especially privileged to have worked with him and to have spent many happy hours with him. Professor Zhou Wei's life has ended much too soon, but he will be remembered with a very special admiration and affection.
A memorial for Professor Zhou will be held at Shanghai Jiaotong University on Tuesday, April 22. Professor Zhou’s obituary, and details of the memorial service, are available here.
