The National People's Congress on March 16th passed the Enterprise Income Tax Law. The law accomplishes the long-awaited unification of tax treatment of foreign-invested and domestic enterprises, although in steps and with exceptions. Here's an article about it in the China Daily.
I'll post the text of the law as soon as it's available.

I am posting the following at the request of Prof. Pat Randolph of the University of Missouri at Kansas City:
We will hire an non-tenure track instructor who will assist in the development of a number of course offerings for our foreign LLM programs, almost all of which are from mainland China. Next year we will have 14 such students, and are aiming for 20 foreign LLM's (again, mostly from China) in the future.
The job will involve a renewable twelve month contract, and the person will be expected to start at least by early July. Compensation will be at the instructor level - and will be negotiated based upon the applicant's qualifications. Although this is not a "tenure track" position, the school is willing to provide reasonable research support for candidates with an interest in research. Although I presently have the title of Director of Chinese programs, and the candidate would have the title of Associate Director, it is anticipated that I will retire at some point (I'm 62) and the Associate will be a candidate for the Directorship. The law school also conducts a summer school program for Western law students at Peking University, and there may be some opportunity to travel to Beijing in relation in early summer months in connection with that program or other law school initiatives.
