Upcoming Conferences at CUHK Law

CUHK Law is hosting the following conferences at its Graduate Law Centre in Central from August 2019 to January 2020:

“Beyond Goods: Trade in Services and Investment in a Climate of Trade Protectionism” (16-17 August 2019)

Held in conjunction with the Trade and Investment in Services Associates (TIISA) Network, University of Adelaide, this conference is to focus on contemporary issues which are shaping the future of trade relations, namely technological advances, Brexit and the ongoing trade war between the US and China.

“Aviation Law and Policy in Asia” (1-2 November 2019)

This conference will examine the legal and policy evolution of the aviation sector in 14 different Asian jurisdictions and analyse the dynamic regulatory challenges that each jurisdiction faces.

“Machine Lawyering: Digitally Reconceiving Contracting, Regulation and Property” (16-18 January 2020)

The form, speed and nature of contracting, regulation and property are experiencing dramatic change through algorithmic processing of data. This confluence of technology and commerce has taken shape in Fintech, Regtech and more general forms of automation. The first phase of the academic and regulatory literature has sought to understand these technologies and bring their application within existing law. As such application matures, a perception also arises that the law should be pushed forward to allow the possibilities these technologies entail. Others warn of additional safeguards to present new forms of abuse. This conference aims to bring together new scholarship expressing any or all of these positions.
