Sir YK Pao Chair David Law Awarded Distinguished Paper Award for co-authored paper, "Constitutional Dissonance in China"

Congratulations to our Sir YK Pao Chair in Public Law, Professor David Law, and his co-author who will receive a Distinguished Paper Award from the East Asian Law and Society Section of The Association of American Law Schools (AALS) at the AALS Annual Meeting in January 2018.
     The award is for a piece entitled “Constitutional Dissonance in China” which Professor Law co-authored with Professor Wen-Chen Chang of National Taiwan University. The work explains why it is "highly beneficial for comparative constitutional scholars to study Chinese constitutionalism." The piece will be published as a book chapter in the forthcoming edited collection, Comparative Constitutional Theory (Edward Elgar 2018), edited by Gary Jacobsohn & Miguel Schor.  It can be downloaded from SSRN by clicking here.
     This year the AALS Section on East Asian Law and Society selected four papers to be honoured in the annual Call for Papers on Asian scholarship on law and society. The papers and awards will be presented at the AALS meeting in San Diego from 5-6 January 2018.  All papers receive offers of publication in the Asian Law Review (U Penn).  The selection committee members were Eric Feldman (Penn), Chulwoo Lee (Yonsei), Robert B Leflar (Arkansas, chair), Craig Martin (Washburn), and Teemu Ruskola (Emory).
