Jeffrey Sean Lehman, Professor of Law and Former President at Cornell University, is currently a Senior Scholar at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, and the President of the Joint Center for China-U.S. Law & Policy Studies at Peking University and Beijing Foreign Studies University.

During his tenure as the eleventh president of Cornell University, President Lehman drew the university community together to expand its role as a transnational institution and to marshal its resources in response to some of the most significant practical challenges facing humanity in the twenty-first century: life in the age of the genome, wisdom in the age of digital information, and sustainability in the age of development. Under his leadership, the university set new records for fundraising success and for applicant volume. President Lehman also led Cornell to forge new ties with the top universities in China, as well as to establish new links in France, India, and Singapore. 

President Lehman is Chair of the Board of Internet2, www.internet2.edu, an Independent Director of Infosys Technologies Ltd. (NASDAQ: INFY), and a Trustee of the Asian University for Women Support Foundation, www.asian-university.org. He was awarded an honorary doctorate degree by Peking University University in recognition of his service as a bridge between scholars in the United States and China; he is also an honorary professor at China Agricultural University and at Xiamen University.
