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 as well as international law issues relating to China. The inaugural meeting of the CLDG took place in late May 2018 at St Hugh's College, with over 50 participants from academic, practitioner, and policy backgrounds in attendance. We have had a number of meetings since then, ranging from 20 to 110 attendees.

We warmly welcome speakers and participants from diverse disciplines and professional backgrounds with an interest in Chinese, comparative, and international law. We regularly co-host meetings with the Oxford University China Centre and other departments at Oxford. Anyone may join our mailing list by contacting the CLDG Convenor, Mimi Zou
