The inaugural Tsinghua-UNSW Joint Research Centre for International Commercial and Economic Law (JCICEL) Conference will be held virtually on Monday 21 September 2020. The theme of this year's conference is "Law and Technology: International Regulations".
Discussions will be carried out from two broad perspectives: IP, commercial and dispute settlement, and trade and investment. Eight presentations from both UNSW Law and Tsinghua University have been selected to be presented at this conference, plus two keynote presentations from guest speakers.
With China’s opening-up and accession to the WTO, it plays an increasingly active role in the international economic legal order in terms of scale and speed. China's unprecedented rise requires research, teaching and social engagement to address complex legal issues in international commercial and economic law arising. The Tsinghua-UNSW Joint Research Centre for International Commercial and Economic Law (JCICEL) established in 2019 between UNSW Law and China’s Tsinghua University Law School. It aims to develop a group of world-leading researchers in the fields of International Commercial and Economic Law on general legal issues and China-specific issues.
International commercial and economic law is facing new challenges. These challenges range from dispute settlement and corporate law to technology and investment. This conference will bring together experts in different areas to discuss the cutting-edge issues and the future of international economic legal order.
