Event Details

Despite China’s entry into the World Trade Organization in 2001, China has never viewed legal concepts, such as the rule of law and intellectual property, the way Westerners view them. In fact, China’s legal traditions and practices developed quite differently than in the West, due in part to China’s culture, educational system, and language, argues Charles Stone, a scholar of Chinese society. What are China’s attitudes and positions on dispute resolution, such as arbitration? Why will China continue to be a minefield for Western organizations? Dr. Stone believes that legal developments in the past year are rather ominous and that Westerners must be vigilant and assertive. Plan now to attend this insightful perspective on contemporary China. Charles Stone, who earned three degrees from The University of Chicago, has published on Chinese art, literature, philosophy, history, intellectual property, and other topics. He currently works at Weiss Berzowski Brady LLP in Milwaukee, and expects to receive a JD from Marquette University Law School in December of 2009.
