2nd Chicago-Tsinghua Young Faculty Forum on Law

All day
Through June 14, 2019
University of Chicago Center in Beijing
20th Floor, Culture Plaza
59A Zhong Guan Cun Street
Haidian District, Beijing

Begins
Jun. 13

The Chicago-Tsinghua Young Faculty Forum On Law and Social Science selected twelve scholars to present work-in-progress papers written in English. Each paper will be given a 45-minute slot, which will begin with a brief, 15-minute presentation by the author, introducing the main argument of the paper. The presentation will then be followed by group discussion and Q&A for another 30 minutes.

The purpose of the Forum is to allow for open conversation with free flow of ideas and wide participation, in the Chicago “round table” style workshop. To facilitate this format, there will be no prepared comments by the discussants. All papers will be distributed and read by all participants in advance, to enable rigorous and broad discussion.
