The Chinese Law Discussion Group (CLDG) is a new forum at Oxford for exploring a full range of issues with respect to the intersection/comparison of Chinese, civil, and common law and legal traditions. We warmly welcome speakers from academia, practice, and policy at all levels and from all disciplines with an interest in Chinese and comparative law. We regularly co-host meetings with the Oxford University China Centre.

We are excited to officially launch the CLDG on 29 May 2018, 5-6.30pm at the Dickson Poon Building, St Hugh's College. Our first speaker will be one of the most renowned international scholars in Chinese law, Professor Jacques deLisle. Professor deLisle is the Stephen A. Cozen Professor of Law & Professor of Political Science; Director, Center for East Asian Studies at the University of Pennsylvania Law School.

Joining the launch will be Dame Elish Angiolini (Principal of St Hugh's College), Professor Anne Davies (Dean, Oxford Law), and Professor Rana Mitter (Director, China Centre). Everyone is welcome to join the lecture and the drinks reception afterwards. Please check our Events section for more details.
