China Insight: Panel Discussion On Legal Issues in China

by on March 12, 2010

Recently, George Washington School of Law and Georgetown University Law Center hosted a conference to honor Chinese legal scholar Prof. Jerome A. Cohen.  Four panels addressed a wide range of current legal issues in China, including Google’s recent departure from the market, general business and international law, as well the future of civil rights and criminal law in China.

Cohen’s interest in Chinese law began in 1960, when he was one of only a few foreigners in mainland China.  He moved to Hong Kong before returning to the U.S. to become a faculty member at the  Harvard Law School.  Following his time at Harvard, Cohen returned to China in 1979 , joining Coudert Brothers and opening the first foreign law office in Beijing.

Needless to say, there is a lot to be learned about doing business and practicing law in China, and Cohen and his former students provide some keen insight into the intricacies of the Chinese market.  To learn more about the conference and see video of the panel discussion please visit the China Law & Policy Blog.
