East Meets West: Consensus and Resolution Across the Pacific

May 23 - June 3, 2016


The Hong Kong/Beijing Study Tour provides a unique, intensive experience for lawyers and business people who are interested in representing clients doing business in China and Hong Kong or in understanding the rapidly changing landscape of dispute resolution in Asia.

Tour participants:

  • meet and have discussions with officers of the leading dispute resolution institutions in Hong Kong and Beijing;
  • speak with and learn from prominent attorneys, judges, arbitrators and mediators;
  • visit courts and government agencies;
  • see a trial in progress in a People's Court;
  • tour one of the best-known People's Mediation Centers in China.

International lawyers and businesses routinely spend considerable time and money obtaining such opportunities, all of which will be part of your experience in this one-of-a-kind course. We'll also visit some of the great sites of China, including the Great Wall, the Forbidden City, the Temple of Heaven, old and new Hong Kong, and other sites, and sample a variety of wonderful cuisines.
