CUFE’s Business Law Trial Competition offers both Chinese and non-Chinese students the opportunity to team up as lawyers to dispute substantive issues of international trade and/or international investment law before a mock panel of judges. Applying Chinese civil procedure law, students research, brief, and debate challenging choice of law and choice of forum issues. Diverse student teams (a mix of students from civil and common law countries) offer the opportunity to witness different methods of pleading, argument, and legal analysis. Prior to the trial competition, students receive training in comparative civil procedure law, focused primarily on the core differences between civil proceedings in common law versus civil law systems.
