Central/East Asia & China Committee

Mission Statement

This committee supports ABA members with interests in China-related legal matters. Committee work, in the United States and in China, including the Chinese mainland, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Macau, includes review, analysis, comment, and information-sharing on matters of law, legal practice, and related policy as well as social and business networking events. Additionally, the committee organizes and sponsors educational programs relevant to China practice. The committee's scope crosses borders and addresses China related issues that may originate from continents other than North America and Asia. Within China and the Chinese territories, the China committee works to facilitate links and understanding between the ABA and local bar associations, and also with legal practitioners based in China but licensed from other countries, as well as both Chinese and international law students.
