The U-M Law School, the Chinese University of Hong  Kong’s (CUHK’s) Centre for Financial Regulation and Economic Development, and the Lieberthal-Rogel Center for Chinese Studies (LRCCS) at U-M brought together some of the world’s top experts in the public and private enforcement of corporate and securities law at a December conference in Hong Kong. 

The conference, “Public and Private Enforcement of Corporate and Securities Law—China and the World,” marked an occasion to examine the most critical issues affecting globalized capital markets and China’s domestic legal system.

“This conference offered a wonderful opportunity to explore critical issues pertaining to the protection of property rights under law, via both private and public enforcement, and in China and across the globe, in a truly comparative manner. 

It also directly showcased Michigan Law’s unique strengths in U.S. and foreign corporate and securities law,” said Nicholas C. Howson, professor of law at Michigan and a conference co-organizer with CUHK Professor Robin Huang Hui. 

He expects the conference papers will be chapters in a book published in 2016. 

In addition to the participation of seven Michigan Law faculty, the conference featured papers presented by academics and officials from the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy, China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, Korea, India, and Japan.
