Greater China Legal History Seminar Series 2018-19

 

The Greater China Legal History Seminar Series 2018-19 will commence in September. The seminars aim to serve as a forum to discuss the historical development of a great variety of legal issues of interest in the Greater China region. The topics are in many cases the basis of the law and its application as of today and will therefore offer the opportunity to explore the respective contextual status. The seminars will be conducted by experts in their respective fields, but are meant to cater to the legally interested general public. The events will usually comprise presentations by one or more speakers (up to 60 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 organisers Steven Gallagher, Associate Professor of Practice & Associate Dean (Academic Affairs) and Lutz-Christian Wolff, Wei Lun Professor of Law & Dean of Graduate School.

All seminars will be held at the CUHK Graduate Law Centre, 2/F, Bank of America Tower, Central.
