Jingjing Liu’s research focuses on environmental governance, dispute resolution, and access to justice in China. Titled “Oscillating Between Court Mediation and Adjudication in Chinese Environmental Lawsuits – Loss of Opportunities or A Happy Ending for All?”, her J.S.D. dissertation examines how Chinese judges adjudicate and mediate civil environmental cases, as well as the long-term impacts of their decision-making on China’s environmental governance and the rule of law development.
Prior to attending Columbia Law School’s J.S.D. program, Jingjing was the associate director of Vermont Law School’s U.S.-China Partnership for Environmental Law, a program funded by USAID and the State Department to advance environmental governance and the rule of law in China. She also taught Chinese law and comparative environmental law research at Vermont Law School as an assistant professor of law. Jingjing received her LLB and LLM degrees from Sun Yat-sen University in Guangzhou, China, and an LLM from Columbia Law School.
