Nordic China Law Scholars Meeting


Get Directions

#var:page_name# cover

As part of Nordic China Law Week 2018 (17 - 23 April), on Friday 20 April 2018, the Faculty of Law of the University of Helsinki and the Finnish Center of Chinese Law and Chinese Legal Culture will host the first-ever Nordic China Law Scholars Meeting.

The purpose of the Meeting, which will be held between 09:00 – 11:00, is to provide a forum in which scholars can share their China law-related activities and plans, and explore forms and possibilities of inter-institutional collaboration at a general level.

There will also be discussion of Nordic-wide involvement in some events being organized by the Faculty of Law at the University of Helsinki and the Finnish China Law Center, including the 9th Bilateral Seminar on Comparative Law with the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences (CASS) (Beijing, September 2018 – exact date to be confirmed).

This round table discussion is open to those affiliated with universities or research institutions in the Nordic region whose research or teaching relates to the law and China (including Chinese law, comparative law involving China, and China’s engagement with international law).

Scholars who would like to pursue legal teaching or research involving China are also invited to attend.

While the meeting is intended for senior scholars, junior academics, including doctoral students, are warmly encouraged to join.

Professor Pia Letto-Vanamo, Dean of the Faculty of Law of the University of Helsinki, will chair the Meeting.

Tea and coffee will be served during the meeting, and a light lunch will follow.
