The Second International Symposium on Sino-American Comparative Law
May 1 – 3, 2013
Oklahoma City University School of Law
More than 30 professors and four deans from eight law schools located throughout China are coming to the Sarkeys Law Center on May 2 to participate with faculty from Oklahoma City University School of Law in The Second International Symposium on Sino-American Comparative Law. During the symposium, professors from both countries will exchange summaries of their recent research to compare legal trends in the world’s two largest economies.
The all-day program will consist of a series of concurrent panels, each consisting of four to five professors addressing the same field of law. There will be panels on legal theory, constitutional law, environmental law, criminal justice, family law, and government regulation of business. The opening panel will examine China’s progress in developing the rule of law since the world’s second largest economy was admitted to the World Trade Organization ten years ago. The symposium will conclude with a plenary program examining the influence of American legal education on law schools in China.
The First International Symposium on Sino-America Comparative Law was hosted by Nankai University School of Law in Tianjin, China in July 2011. Nine members of the Oklahoma City University School of Law faculty participated.[/twothirds_right]
