The Legal Forum is designed for legal practitioners (both private practice and in-house) working in Beijing to exchange their experience and expertise about current and topical legal issues.

The overall aim is to encourage lawyers to actively engage in discussions about the law and the practical issues which they face when undertaking business in China.

The forum covers a wide range of PRC/UK-related legal issues, for example the latest developments in PRC law on foreign investment and the effects of the UK Bribery Act on businesses in China.
