On the morning of December 6, 2019, Zhilin Beijing Headquarters had a visit from the Assistant Dean of International Programs Andrew Horsfall and the known professor Arlene Kanter at Syracuse University College of Law for symposium.

Managing Partner Steven Pan, Senior Partner Di Zeng, and alumni Da Lu and Boliang Xia offered the visiting guests a warm welcome.

Initially, Mr. Pan welcomed the guests warmly on behalf of the firm, and then he presented to them the basic overview, practice composition, and prospect development of Zhilin Law Firm.

Then Dean Horsfall and Professor Kanter introduced the past and present, teaching philosophy, and famous alumni of Syracuse University and the College of Law, emphasizing on the university’s wish to strengthen international communication and the international programs that the College of Law has established.

The two sides exchanged opinions on collaboration between Chinese and American law practices, promotion of professional skills, legal services for foreigners in China, protection of rights of disabled persons, and other topics. Both sides achieved a preliminary intention of cooperation regarding programs including founding a Syracuse University College of Law internship program in Beijing, establishing a Zhilin scholar visiting program, and initiating a short-term young lawyer training program.

Mr. Pan expressed in his concluding speech that, with the end of the China-United States trade conflict, the collaborative legal services market of China and the United States will certainly broaden, corresponding to Syracuse University College of Law’s wish of promoting international engagement and to Zhilin Law Firm’s concept of starting from homeland but stretching to the world. He hopes that the two can deepen understanding, further cooperation, create a win-win partnership, and advance together under the globalization of the legal services market.
