CUHK LAW is pleased to announce that the “7th Year Greater China Legal History Seminar Series 2021-22” will commence in September 2021.
The “Greater China Legal History Seminar Series” was launched in 2017. This seminar series builds upon the success of the “Chinese Customary Law Seminar Series” conducted from 2014 to 2016 covering topics such as Chinese Customary Land Law, Chinese Customary Family Law and Customary Trusts in Hong Kong. The “Greater China Legal History Seminar Series” aims to serve as a forum to discuss the historical development of a great variety of legal issues of interest in the Greater China region. Acknowledging that the historical development is the basis of modern law and its application the seminars offer the opportunity to explore the respective contextual status. While being conducted by experts in their fields, the seminars are meant to cater to the legally interested general public. The events will usually comprise presentations by one or more speakers (up to 70 minutes) followed by a Q&A session (up to 30 minutes). Each Seminar is open and free of charge to all who are interested.
Anyone interested in contributing to the seminar series, please contact the organizers Professor Lutz-Christian Wolff, Dean of the Faculty of Law & Wei Lun Professor of Law and Professor Steven Gallagher, Associate Dean (Academic and Student Affairs).
