王先林副院长首先致欢迎词。这是学院首次开设知识产权法模拟法庭课程并由美国飞翰律师事务所负责全部教学。作为我院教学改革的有机组成部分,该课程内容为美国知识产权法律理论和实务,旨在培养学生的普通法思维、为将来从事律师工作做适应性训练,同时利于学生专业英语水平的提高,为造就“高层次复合型法律职业人才”奠定坚实基础。随后,飞翰律师事务所律师林艺思、王宁玲在向大家简单介绍了该律所的基本情况、本学期课程设置和考核方式后开始了本学期的第一课,课堂上气氛非常活跃,两位老师的美式互动教学深受同学欢迎,大家就听课过程中遇到的问题随时发出提问。

据悉,此次飞翰律师事务所来我院开展知识产权法模拟法庭教学,将用中英双语教学,主要面向09级法律硕士。课程为期12,最后两周同学们将分组展开模拟法庭辩论。我院本学期共开设三种模拟法庭课程,除上述课程外,另两种分别涉及中国律师实务和Jessup国际法模拟法庭辩论赛。
