Oldest Law Student is 87

China Daily reports :

An 87-year-old man, Wang Jianbang of Zhengzhou, capital of Henan Province, has become the oldest person in China to take law courses.

According to Sun Jiwen, headmaster of the training school, Wang hopes to become a lawyer when he graduates.

Wang decided to take up law after he lost a property case early this year.

Moved by Wang's spirit, the training school has waived his tuition fees of more than 10,000 yuan ($1,298).
