2021 Harvard Law School China Law Symposium: Building Bridges over Troubled Waters
April 11-15, 2021

The Harvard Law School China Law Association (CLA) will host its annual China Law Symposium, “Building Bridges over Troubled Waters,” from Sunday, April 11th to Thursday, April 15th. This year’s Symposium consists of panels on U.S.-China relations, racial profiling against Chinese-American scientists, intellectual property law in China, opening up of China’s financial market, and cross-border dispute resolution, as well as a keynote speech featuring Ms. Wei Sun Christianson, CEO of China and Co-CEO of Asia Pacific for Morgan Stanley. The Symposium not only brings together prominent legal scholars and practitioners to shed light on major developments in the legal sphere, but also gathers leading experts from various other fields to share insight on some of the most thorny issues in the overall Sino-U.S. relations.
