The Legal Environment and Law About the Environment in China
Start Date: 3/13/2013Start Time: 5:00 PM
End Date: 3/13/2013End Time: 7:00 PM
Event Description:
Lecture by two experts on Chinese law, Benjamin L. Liebman, Robert L. Lieff Professor of Law and Director of the Center for Chinese Legal Studies at Columbia University and Alex Wang, Visiting Assistant Professor of Law at Boalt Law School at the University of California, Berkeley and previously a senior attorney for the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) based in Beijing and director of NRDC’s China Environmental Law & Governance Project in China.
Dr. Liebman's talk is titled "Stability Without Law? The State of Legal Development in China": Over the past decade, concerns about social stability have resulted in a slowing in the pace of legal reforms in China. Many inside and outside of China have questioned China's commitment to deepening legal reforms. As China's leadership transition is completed in March, Professor Liebman will discuss both recent trends in the legal system and the likely future trajectory of reform.
Dr. Wang's talk is titled "A Green Leap Forward? Governance, Law & Environmental Protection in China": China is facing some of the most serious environmental problems the world has ever seen. In recent years, Chinese leaders have instituted a range of environmental laws and policies to uncertain effect. This talk will focus on recent developments and assess the factors that will determine whether China can ultimately resolve its environmental crisis.
This event is free and open to the public. Presented with support from Colorado Law.
