Webcast: Panel discussion on "China's Changing Courts"

Here's an announcement from NYU Law School's U.S.-Asia Law Institute. I attended this discussion and it was very good. All the participants are doing very interesting research on China's courts.

Now showing on the US-Asia Law Institute’s website is the webcast of “China’s Changing Courts: Populist Vehicle or Party Puppet?” from Thursday, Feb. 19, 2009 and featuring a panel of China law scholars, including Prof. Ben Liebman of Columbia Law School, Prof. Xin “Frank” He of the City University of Hong Kong School of Law, Prof. Nicholas C. Howson of the University of Michigan School of Law, Prof. Carl Minzner of Washington University School of Law, and Rachel E. Stern, a Ph.D. candidate at the University of California, Berkeley.

We invite you to watch the webcast here:

After watching, please submit questions to the panelists.

The panelists will be taking questions from the web audience; 10 questions will be answered on our website.  Please submit questions by Wednesday, February 25, 2009 via email: with the subject line "Court Panel Question."

We will post the answers by Monday, March 2, 2009.
