Jerome A. Cohen: Reflections on 50 Years of Chinese Law
AIRED:
In this program of the National Committee on U.S.-China Relations, Jerome A. Cohen reflects on a fifty-year career as a pioneer in the field of Chinese and Asian legal studies in the United States. Professor Cohen played an important role in the re-opening of U.S.-China relations and has educated hundreds of government, NGO, legal and corporate leaders.As the founder and director of East Asian Legal Studies at Harvard Law School (1964-1981), Professor Cohen helped introduce East Asian legal systems and perspectives into American legal curricula. He is of counsel (retired partner) to the law firm of Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison and was one of the earliest foreign lawyers practicing law in modern China.Since 1990 Professor Cohen has been with New York University Law School, where he is co-director of the U.S.-Asia Law Institute and teaches courses on Chinese criminal justice, China-s legal tradition, international business transactions, and international law. He is also an adjunct senior fellow for Asian Studies at the Council on Foreign Relations. In recent years, Professor Cohen has also focused on addressing core issues in China-s criminal process and human rights policies.The National Committee on United States-China Relations is a nonprofit, nonpartisan educational organization that encourages understanding and cooperation between the United States and Greater China. The National Committee focuses its exchange, educational and policy activities on politics and security, education, governance and civil society, economic cooperation, media and transnational issues, addressing these with respect to mainland China, Hong Kong and Taiwan. The National Committees distinguished board of directors and individual and corporate members from around the United States represent many viewpoints but share the conviction that ongoing public outreach, face-to-face communication and forthright exchange of ideas is essential for healthy Sino-American relations.moreless
