Former Student Impressions
Professor Baker's lecture helped me better understand the structure of the U.S. government and the workings of this great nation. It has also given me new insights on many frequently used terms like "democracy" and "majoritarian tyranny." This was certainly a refreshing and inspiring learning experience.

I took this course with Professor Baker in 2010 at The University of Hong Kong. His passion for Chinese culture and his profound knowledge of Common Law impressed me greatly. In his class, I not only learnt the basic rules of American Common Law and U.S. Constitution, but most importantly the course also laid a firm foundation for my studies in the United States two years later. Through his class, I realized for the first time that you need to have unlimited passion and put enormous effort in learning the law and working as a lawyer.

我于2010年在香港大学与贝克教授一起修读这门课程。 他对中国文化的热情和他对普通法的深刻了解给我留下了深刻的印象。 在他的班上，我不仅学习了美国普通法和美国宪法的基本规则，更重要的是，这一课程为我在美国两年后的学习奠定了坚实的基础。 通过他的课，我第一次意识到，你需要有无限的激情，付出巨大的努力学习法律和律师工作。
When I signed up for this program, I mostly looked forward to meeting Justice Alito, however, this program has given me so much more than that. Dr. Baker's lectures were excellent and we visited so many institutions in two weeks that even though I will be pursuing a J.D. in the future, I don't think I will get such a great opportunity to understand the U.S. Constitution in such a unique way."

Benefits of the Program for Students Applying to Graduate School in the United States
I was admitted by the Georgetown LL.M program in January 2017. Participating in the U.S. Constitution and American Economy Summer Program introduced me to the U.S. Constitution and legal system, and evoked my passion for further education at Georgetown. During the LL.M application process, the experience in the summer program really helped me think through the reasons for applying, and has formed my uniqueness among all the competitors.
