Accompanied by her daughter, Ms. Susie Wells, son-in-law Mr. Matthew Connock, along with this year's presenter of the Tang Prize in Rule of Law, Professor Dr. Jiunn-Rong YEH from the College of Law, National Taiwan University, and Professor Wen-Chen CHANG from the same department, Professor Saunders paid a visit to our Academy in the afternoon of August 2, 2023. President Li-Ling KER first hosted a tea reception for the guests at the student lounge, introducing them to our country's judicial officer training system. Subsequently, they proceeded to the Auditorium for a group photo with trainees of the 62nd Judicial Officer Class. Following this, the guests were guided on a tour of the computer classroom, the Academy’s History Corridor, the Moot Courtroom, and the Library.
