February 17, 2015 § Leave a comment

Dear Colleagues,
The Asian Studies Center and the Center for International Legal Education at the University of Pittsburgh would like to announce an upcoming conference that may be of interest to many of you.  “Law and the Legal Profession in China” will be held at the University Of Pittsburgh School Of Law on February 27-28, 2015.  Organized by Ronald Brand, James Cook, Pierre Landry, and John Givens, this conference will bring together an international panel of experts to discuss the development and current practice of the legal profession in China.  “Law and the Legal Profession in China” will explore four main themes: History of Law in China, International and Commercial Law, China’s Legal Profession in Comparative Perspective with a focus on Asia, and the domestic practice of law.  Our purpose is to not only understand how the practice of law has evolved over the past two decades, but also discover new opportunities for practice and research.  The conference will be multidisciplinary, bringing together historians, political scientists, practicing attorneys, and established legal scholars for an opportunity to explore questions such as the legal implications of the emergence of China in both Asia and America, the development of the rule of law in China, current reforms in the practice of law in China, and corporate, regulatory, and intellectual property issues facing cross-border transactions by US and China businesses.
Participants include Alison Bailey, University of British Columbia; Donald Clarke, George Washington University; Jacques deLisle, University of Pennsylvania; Mary Gallagher, University of Michigan; Max Laun, Vice President & General Counsel, Alcoa; Diane Lazzaris, General Counsel & Senior Vice President, Wesco Distribution; Sida Liu, University of Wisconsin, Madison; Jothie Rajah, American Bar Foundation; Glenn Tiffert, University of California, Berkeley; Dennis Unkovic, Meyer Unkovic & Scott; Xiaoqun Xu, Christopher Newport University and Heidi Zhang, Senior Counsel – Asia, Westinghouse.
The conference is free and open to the public with registration.  Continuing Legal Education credit will be offered.  For more information, including paper titles and a conference schedule, please visit the conference webpage athttp://www.ucis.pitt.edu/asc/conferences/law-in-china/index. Please email Ms. Lynn Kawaratani with name and affiliation at lyk12@pitt.edu if you wish to attend.

I may be missing something but I don’t see very many “Chinese” here. Only academia and corporate. No actual “practicing” law
