New York University School of Law’s U.S.-Asia Law Institute and Columbia Law School’s Center for Chinese Legal Studies will host a panel discussion with leading academics in Chinese law called “China’s Changing Courts: Populist Vehicle or Party Puppet?” on Thursday, February 19, 2008, at NYU School of Law, Lipton Hall, 108 W. 3rd Street (between Sullivan and Macdougal Streets).
“China’s courts are in a period of transition right now, at times responding to the people’s demands to do justice, but at other times answering to the Communist Party. This panel discussion spotlights these tensions and discusses the future of the courts in China’s legal development,” said Elizabeth M. Lynch, Esq., research fellow at the U.S.-Asia Law Institute.
A webcast of the discussion will be available beginning February 23, 2009 at www.usasialaw.org. After watching, questions may be submitted to the panelists by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Ten questions will be answered and posted online by February 27, 2009.
This event is also sponsored by The Kwang Hua Educational Fund, NYU’s China House, and NYU School of Law’s Institute for Law and Society.
