City University is to video-link its law students with world-class professors from Yale and Oxford universities. From this semester, students on CityU's international investment law and civil procedure courses will be able to take part in two-hour seminars each week with Yale Law School's professor of international law Michael Reisman and University of Oxford's professor of civil procedure Adrian Zuckerman. CityU law school dean Wang Guiguo said: 'International legal education via video conferencing is a necessity as it's the most efficient way for us to get top scholars worldwide.'
