Accessibility to Individuals with Disabilities

The Jiming Express Inn is wheelchair accessible.  The classroom facilities and much of Beijing are not wheelchair accessible.  China has come a long way toward improving accessibility, and its metro system is fully accessible.  But, it can still be difficult for an individual with disabilities to get around on his/her own.

Cancellation Policy

We do not envision canceling the Summer Program unless the State Department determines that travel to the PRC is dangerous to the health or safety of foreign visitors.  Should that occur, the students would be immediately notified by email.  Full refunds will be made, and all students will be provided with the option of joining another summer program sponsored by the Law School.

Refund Policy

Refunds will be made if the program is canceled or if a student withdraws before classes begin.  The Law School, in its discretion, may refund all or a portion of the tuition to any student whose withdrawal during the program is for compelling reasons.
