China Committee


Message From The Co-Chairs



On behalf of our leadership team, welcome to the China Committee homepage. We hope you take the time to explore the rich content on this page, including the “China Law Reporter” (our award-winning newsletter), global teleconference program materials, “Year-in-Review” articles, City Survival Guides, China Law Research Guides, online resources and more.

The China Committee is an adventurous group allowing members to observe, analyze, discuss, and participate in fast-moving legal developments in Greater China. Opportunities are available to understand and inquire about how changes may or will affect businesses operating in China or with businesses doing business with Chinese on all continents.

We have programs on cutting edge topics lined up for the coming year that will be presented globally via teleconference,and live in Shanghai, New York, Los Angeles,and many other cities.

Attorneys from around the world gather at Social Networking Mixers in Shanghai, Beijing, and New York City as well as at the SIL conferences at organized gatherings. U.S.A.and Shanghai associate attorneys can participate in the pilot Internship Exchange Program.

In September 2013, we launched the ABA year with a 2-day Antitrust Program in Beijing and 1-day “hot topic” program in Shanghai with record breaking attendance.

We are in the process of planning an attorney referral program for ABA members and an on-line chat session on China law. CLE credits can soon be earned from events in Shanghai, Los Angeles and elsewhere.

As foreign investment in China grows and Chinese do business around the world, our Committee is looking to expand our program offerings in the U.S., Europe, Latin America and beyond.

Scholarly articles on the most recent developments in Chinese law are published in our “China Law Reporter”. These articles serve as an excellent reference for law practitioners with an interest in or a China-related Practice. Brief updates on changes in Chinese law will be published in our “E-Bulletin”.

A monthly overview of the Committee’s offerings is sent out in our “China Committee Communicator”. Material and audios from our numerous programs are available after the program has long since been presented.

Membership in the Section of International Law includes free membership in as many committees as one would choose. We especially encourage lawyers from Greater China to join the Section and the China Committee.

We encourage you to join, attend or participate in our projects and programs. We also encourage you to contribute to our various publications and to return to this website often for updates.

If you are not a member of the Section of International Law, we encourage you to join. If you're not a U.S.-qualified lawyer, don't worry--more than 10% of Section members are lawyers licensed in jurisdictions other than the United States. You can still join the ABA and the Section of International Law as an associate member, and still be a leader in the Section, all without being a U.S.-qualified lawyer.

If you are a member of the Section but not a member of the China Committee, please consider joining. As our Mission Statement (above) states, we support Section members with interests in China-related legal matters and work to facilitate links between Greater China and the world and an understanding of the many unique legal issues involved in doing business in Greater China.

We welcome everyone to join on our monthly Committee Conference Call - for 2016/7, the call schedule is:

8:30pm ET calls: 27 September 2016, 25 October 2016, 20 December 2016, 24 January 2017, 18 March 2017, 25 April 2017, 27 June 2017 and 25 July 2017; and

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.
