US-China Business Council Legal Cooperation Fund

Here's an announcement about the latest round of grants from the US-China Business Council's Legal Cooperation Fund: Download USCBC-LCF.pdf. The fund operates under the auspices of the USCBC's non-profit educational and research arm, the China Business Forum.

This is a good program for small-scale grants that operates with a minimum of red tape. For information on applying, see the LCF's website.

NYT on Gao Zhisheng

I have already posted twice (here and here) about attorney Gao Zhisheng (高智晟); there's now a good story about him in the Dec. 13th New York Times (registration required, but free).

Job opportunity at the US-China Business Council

Here's something that is not strictly speaking law-related, but that is close enough to be of interest to readers of this blog, I think:

The US-China Business Council is looking for a vice president to lead its China operations. Full text of announcement here.

Temporary suspension of postings to Chinese Law Prof Blog - correction

A reader has helpfully shown me how to overcome the problems I was having in posting. Thus, there is no need to suspend postings completely. But for other reasons I will have to be posting less frequently over the next couple of weeks.

China-related jobs at the USTR

The Office of China Affairs of the Office of the United States Trade Representative has three openings at the GS-14 or GS-15 level. These are relatively senior positions. The job announcements are listed below:

  • Job 1 (Note that although the above announcement is for only one person, my understanding is that two will be hired at this level.)
  • Job 2

Temporary suspension of postings to Chinese Law Prof Blog

I will have to suspend posting to this blog until around Dec. 23. I am currently in China, where all Typepad addresses are blocked. How did I post this then, you may ask. It's possible to get to Typepad through a proxy server, but for some reason accessing it this way makes it impossible for me to format posts in any way (including even hard returns), embed URLs, upload documents, or indeed do anything other than post very simple text such as this. I am going to post one more item regarding job openings at the USTR, because it's time-sensitive. Please forgive the lousy formatting. Happy Holidays to all.
