Guo Li
Professor and Vice Dean of Peking University Law School

In the past decades, Prof. William P. Alford has proved himself as a prominent scholar, a visionary leader, and an amicable mentor and has helped Harvard Law School build up a true worldwide network with ever-increasing global impacts, from which the HILJ also benefits tremendously. There is a Chinese proverb to eulogize teachers: “Peaches and plums do not have to talk, yet the world beats a path to them.” As one of Prof. Alford’s students, I feel very proud to be on such a path, along with thousands of fellow schoolmates from almost every country and continent.
