China Law Reporter call for papers

Here's a message posted recently on the Chinalaw listserv:

Dear All:

I am a vice chair of China Committee under American Bar Association. Our committee has been thriving under the leadership of our present chairs and past chairs. First of all, I would like to wish everyone of you a happy and prosperous New Year.

As a vice chair of China Committee, I am in charge of editing a bi-monthly newsletter, “China Law Reporter” for China Committee along with other co-editors. So far, the newsletter has been well commented.

Our newsletter is divided into following parts: 1) “Co-chairs’ Messages”; 2) “Recent Developments” that contains short articles addressing hot issues; 3)  “China Briefs” features short summary of recent China laws and regulations; 4) “Items of Interests” provide a list of articles or books related to China law; 5) “Job Opportunities” will allow job announcement be posted to China Law Reporter; and 6) “About  the China Law Reporter” .

I am now soliciting short articles around 2000 or less words be posted to “Recent Development”. We usually post three articles per issue. If your article is not published on this issue, we’ll trail it to the next issue after we decided to use it.
You are also welcome to post job opportunities to our newsletter. 
Your contributions to China Law Reporter are much appreciated. Please send your contribution simultaneously to following co-editors:

Qiang Bjornbak: qbjornba@yahoo.com
Paul Edelberg: pedelberg@murthalaw.com
Cameron Smith: cjsmith82@gmail.com
Russell Leu: rklleu@yahoo.com

The deadline for submitting your contributions is originally set on Jan 2nd, 2007. Due to long holiday season, I would like to extend it to Jan 7th. We need to get the newsletter released around mid of January. Please have questions, feel free to contact me. The samples of the previous newsletter are posted to China Committee home page at http://www.abanet.org/dch/committee.cfm?com=IC860000
