Chicago-Tsinghua Junior Faculty Forum

All day
Through June 1, 2018
The University of Chicago Center in Beijing & Tsinghua University

Begins
May 31

The Chicago-Tsinghua Young Faculty Forum is a first of its kind collaboration between leading American and Chinese law schools. The organizers selected twelve scholars working in the area of law-and-social-science to present work-in-progress. The purpose of the Forum is to allow for rigorous and critical discussion in the Chicago “round table” style workshop, to help improve the work, and to set the standards for successful publications. Four members from the faculty of the University of Chicago Law School will also join the Forum as discussants, all of whom have rich experience in conducting inter-disciplinary study of law and social science. Together with a few top Chinese legal scholars, they will raise questions and comments to the presenters. The Forum also hopes to increase the sense of community among American and Chinese legal scholars generally, particularly among those working in the area of law and social science. To facilitate the round table, there will be no prepared comments by the discussants. Each paper will be presented briefly, followed by an open discussion among the participants.
