The purpose of the Forum was to allow for rigorous and critical discussion in the Chicago “roundtable”-style workshop, to set the standards for successful publications, and 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. Four members from the faculty of the University of Chicago Law School, all of whom have rich experience in conducting inter-disciplinary study of law and social science, also joined the Forum as discussants. Together with a few top Chinese legal scholars, they raised questions and comments to the presenters.
