Public Interest Law in China
The Center for Chinese Legal Studies manages several programs that support public interest law in China.
These programs include:
In addition, Benjamin L. Liebman, the director of the Center for Chinese Legal Studies, sits on the board of the PILnet and advises on their China efforts, including effecting the projects of former PILnet fellows once they return to China. The center also assists in public interest initiatives of Columbia Law School faculty, such as the development of legal clinics. Students wishing to explore public interest law, including government work, in China should contact the Center for Chinese Legal Studies or Social Justice Initiatives.
