Analicia Haynes, Editor-in-Chief

The former vice president of the Beijing Supreme Court is paying an impromptu visit to Eastern from 2-4 p.m. on Saturday.

Jingmin Zhai will return to Eastern for a meet and greet in Room 4440 of the Booth Library.

The last time Zhai visited campus was in April 2016.

The Eastern Public Policy Institute will sponsor his visit.

Jim Irwin, the institute’s chairperson, said the meet and greet is a good learning experience for anyone who attends.

“This is something Harvard can’t offer,” Irwin said. “It’s fortunate for Eastern.”

Irwin said he knows how difficult it will be to gather a large audience since most students have gone home for the summer, but  he is still hopeful for a good turnout.

The meet and greet is open to students and community members.

“We will see who we’ll see,” Irwin said.
