Abstract:     
Rule of law in China faces many challenges, and there are limits to what we as U.S. law professors can accomplish. Nonetheless, we can help Chinese law schools promote the rule of law, and this can lead to progress. The article describes challenges to the rule of law in China, as well as opportunities. It then describes experience under the Pacific McGeorge rule of law program to train the trainers in experiential legal education methods. The program has had a multiplier effect as Chinese professors trained in the program have now become trainers themselves. The program has also enhanced the legitimacy of experiential legal education within the law school community of China.
