A group of Chinese corrections officials and scholars are touring Lawrence and Kansas University this week to learn more about America's criminal justice system.

KU is playing host to a delegation of 20 people, who will receive a crash course in American justice as members visit Kansas Supreme Court Chief Justice Kay McFarland, the Kansas Correctional Institute for Women, the Shawnee County Juvenile Detention Facility, Lansing Correctional Facility, Zephyr Enterprises and other facilities.

The visit was arranged by China's State Administration of Foreign Experts Affairs, the agency charged with locating overseas training for Chinese government officials. Host is KU's Public Management Center, a unit of KU Continuing Education.
