    December 11 WEBINAR CLE: Swim Confidently in Chinese Legal Waters with Westlaw China

    As China emerges as an economic power, more and more law firms are clamoring to enter this region of the world. What was once the forbidden territory is now the land of opportunity. However, before any law firm or lawyer can reap the benefits of what China has to offer, it is essential that they have a grasp of the Chinese legal system. Join our new sponsors, Thomson Reuters Global Legal, as they help U.S. practitioners navigate the Chinese legal system. This WEBINAR CLE provides an excellent entry point and introduction to this growing area of law so reserve your seat today!
