CRN East Asian Law and Society was formed within the Law and Society Association to provide a forum for promoting research on East Asian law and society and disseminating its findings to a
wider community of socio-legal scholarship. Both Northeast Asia and Southeast Asia are covered
under this CRN. It welcomes scholars researching on East Asia, and others wishing to enrich
their research and theories with findings from the region. CRN East Asian Law and Society has a
vision to grow into an institutional base for the holding of regional LSA meetings on a regular basis. With this vision, it organizes its inaugural conference in Hong Kong on 5-6 February 2010, jointly with the Faculty of Law, the University of Hong Kong. Scholars, legal practitioners, PhD candidates and researchers are welcome to participate at the Inaugural East Asian Law and Society Conference 2010. As of June 2009, confirmed keynote speakers include Professor Johannes Chan (Dean, Faculty of Law, the University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong), Professor Zhenmin Wang (Dean, School of Law, Tsinghua University, China), and Professor Malcolm Feeley (former President of the Law and Society Association).
