Beijing judge in Charleston today

Tuesday, 24th May 2017

"CHARLESTON -- A Chinese judge is making his way back down to the area today for a speaking engagement organized by the EIU Public Policy Institute.

According to a press release, Beijing High Court Judge Jingmin Zhai will be returning to Eastern Illinois University today from 2-4 p.m. in Conference Room 4440 of Booth Library.

The release states that Zhai, a 27-year judicial veteran, will give “a few remarks” and have a meet-and-greet session afterward accompanied by a translator. While his command of the English is good, a translator will be there as needed, the release noted.

“Zhai handled both criminal and civil cases in all fields with an emphasis on intellectual property rights, anti-corruption and appellate jurisdiction, in addition to serving in law enforcement as Commander of the 1,000 member Judicial Police of Beijing,” the release read.

The judge visited Coles County once before, in April last year.

As previously reported, Zhai was visiting the U.S. to learn about Alternative Dispute Resolution in order to implement an ADR structure in China. Alternative Dispute Resolution pertains to using other methods such as mediation and arbitration to resolve a dispute instead of litigation.

During the 2016 visit, Coles County Judge Mitchell Shick discussed ADR with him. At the time he also took a tour of the Coles County jail.

Nothing else was listed in the press release as to what other plans are in store for his visit today.

The event is free and open to the EIU campus community and the public."
