Green Governance Victories and Ongoing Challenges in China

The New Year calls for introducing a new interview format for some of our meetings so come join us for a fast moving conversation with four leading Chinese environmental and energy lawyers who will reflect on major events and trends over the past year that have impacted pollution control and energy law enforcement and empowerment of citizens. Topics to be discussed include: challenges and progress on judicial enforcement, the continuing development of university law clinics, possible effects of the 12th Five Year Plan, and a brief analysis of renewable and energy efficiency targets and laws. The four lawyers are part of a Vermont Law School delegation and will include Wang Canfa, China University of Political Science and Law/Center for Legal Assistance for Pollution Victims; Yu Wenxuan, China University of Political Science and Law; Li Zhiping, Sun Yat-sen University Law School, and Li Yanfang, Energy Law Center and Renmin University.
