Bar Council supports new China-UK Legal Partnership Initiative

The Bar Council is supporting a new five-year China-UK Legal Partnership (LPI), organised by the China Britain Law Institute (CBLI) and the Confucius Institute for Business. The LPI will organise annual seminars, held alternately at China’s leading Tsinghua University and the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE). The seminars will bring together prominent British and Chinese experts in trade, commerce and commercial law to address legal issues of significance to Anglo-Chinese business.

The launch event took place at the LSE in February, where Henry Carr QC represented the Bar, speaking about the future of Intellectual Property Law and the implications for China. Barristers’ chambers already supporting the initiative include: 4 Pump Court, 39 Essex Street, XXIV Old Buildings and Lamb Chambers. Any other chambers interested in being involved are encouraged to contact Matthew Townsend, Director of the CBLI, at:
