Event Details

AmCham China Legal Committee would like to invite you to join the lecture and discussion on May 16 at 4pm.
Come and learn more about the future of China litigation in the age of Big Data.

Co-hosted by AmCham China and Columbia Global Centers in Beijing, we’re horned to invite two leading scholars:
  • Benjamin L Liebman, Robert L Lieff Professor of Law and Director of Center for Chinese Legal Studies at Columbia Law School
  • Rachel Stern, Assistant Professor of Law and Political Science at Berkeley Law.

Over the past three years, Chinese courts have posted more than 29 million court judgments on line. This mass release of court data is changing how courts judge cases as well as how litigants and lawyers navigate the legal system. Despite the dramatic embrace of transparency, however, much remains missing from the official record.

In their talk, Professors Liebman and Stern will discuss how mass digitization of court opinions is reshaping litigation in China, what is available and what is missing, as well as how big data may reshape our understandings of court practice in China.

Also enjoy this pre-happy hour session with good wine, finger food and opportunity to mingle with other professionals in the field.
