Pitt Law Presents: Law and the Legal Profession in China

Friday and Saturday, February 27-28, 2015

8:45 a.m.-6 p.m.

Alcoa Room Barco Law Building

Over the past two decades, the profession of law within China has undergone tremendous change. China’s ascension to the World Trade Organization, massive foreign investment, and an increasingly cosmopolitan middle class have forced both the central government in Beijing and the country’s practicing attorneys to grapple with new clientele, new areas of practice, and an increasingly nuanced popular response to legal issues. This conference will bring together an international panel of multidisciplinary experts to explore the development and current practice of the legal profession in China.

This conference is free and open to the public. Registration is required. Please e-mail Lynn Kawaratani with your name and affiliation.
