Chinese Law Colloquium Draws Crowds

Fall 2010

Scholars specializing in law, history, and the social sciences recently drew standing-room-only crowds to Jerome Greene Hall for the Chinese Law and Society Colloquium. The interdisciplinary series featured lectures on law, history, literature, and political science by China experts from Fudan University, MIT, and the University of Michigan Law School, among other preeminent institutions.

“There is a lot of exciting work being done by scholars on both contemporary law and society and on Chinese legal history,” said Benjamin L. Liebman, director of the Law School’s Center for Chinese Legal Studies. “This colloquium is one step toward fostering cross-disciplinary dialogue.”
