The 2018-19 HLS China Law Symposium is here!
The topic this year is “How to Engage with China?” On Feb. 22, we will discuss one of the most heated topics this year — US-China relation in the age of a trade war. Former US ambassador to China, Gary Locke, will be our keynote speaker to deliver a speech on China’s transformation and the rule of law. Prominent scholars, lawyers and investors will join us and offer their profound insights into the challenges and opportunities in today’s US-China relation. The Symposium consists of two parts, with the event on Feb. 22 being the Part I and Part II in April (specific date TBD).
Part I of the Symposium, which will take place on Feb. 22, is now open here: https://orgs.law.harvard.edu/cla/register/. Symposium (Part I) will be free for all guests, lunch and snack will also be provided (first-come-first-serve). To make sure that we order enough food, please register ASAP.
