Academics deliver papers at leading universities in Beijing

Professor Gerard McCormack and Dr Zinian Zhang were in China for Renmin University of China – World University Network (RUC – WUN) Think Tank Summit.

During the summit, which took place on  23 and 24 March 2018, both Professor McCormack and Dr Zhang gave papers on the interaction between law and finance.

During the trip, Professor McCormack and Dr Zhang also made visits to Renmin University School of Law, taking part in a panel event with Professor Wang Xinxin, one of the draftsmen of the China Enterprise Bankruptcy Law of 2006. After Renmin they then visited the China University of Political Science and Law, Tsinghua University School of Law Postgraduate where they were granted honorary membership of the University’s national bankruptcy law research centre.

This visit builds upon existing links and relationships between the School of Law at Leeds and these prestigious Chinese Law Schools.
