Dr. Li is an associate professor at China’s Southwest University of Political Science and Law who has many years of experience practicing law in China. During his visit, Dr. Li and Dr. Wang will examine the legal and financial frameworks for the governance and inheritance of family businesses. Dr. Li will also help Dr. Wang develop the content of a new course on family wealth management.

Dr. Li will be the second Sping Lin and Ying-Ngoh T. Lin Visiting Scholar.

Their continuing collaboration aims to improve food safety, specifically along the seafood processing chain.
