Chen Guangcheng, the blind Chinese activist, arrived in New York today.  His cause has long been championed by NYU Law Professor Jerome Cohen, who dubbed him the "barefoot lawyer", though he has no legal training.  Until now, when, I expect, Prof. Cohen and NYU will try to solve that problem - and find a means for Chen and his wife to sustain themselves here.
