Launch of the New SSRN Chinese Law eJournal

We are proud to announce the launch of the new Chinese Law eJournal, published as a Subject Matter eJournal on the Legal Scholarship Network of the Social Science Research Network (SSRN). The eJournal includes working and accepted abstracts and papers providing a platform for scholars of different background and approaches to communicate with each other. We welcome submissions of doctrinal as well as interdisciplinary, quantitative as well as qualitative, macro as well as micro studies of China. We are pleased that there are already almost 3500 papers within the paper series.
     The HKU Faculty of Law has the widest range of expertise in Chinese Law outside Mainland China. Our expertise ranges from One Belt One Road, dispute resolution, criminal law, public law, securities regulation and finance, and intellectual property, to cross-border issues, one country two systems, and legal theory and jurisprudence. Coupled with our strength in common law, we are in a strong position in offering comparative law research and teaching on civil law and common law.
