Over the past forty years, Chinese laws and legal institutions have developed quickly while China went through major deep economic, political and social reforms.

This course will first explore the impact of the recent and current economic and political impact on the legal framework for doing business in China and the PRC legal and judiciary system.

Second, we will discuss the contractual aspects and enforcement in China.

Third, we will focus on the legal structures available for foreign investors entering the Chinese market for manufacturing or distribution purposes. We will emphasize on practical aspects and pitfalls to optimize the protection of overseas investors’ interests in China. Tips on managing foreign direct entities (shareholders’ control, investment strategy, financing, shareholders’ and managers’ liability, IP, compliance, tax and HR issues) will be addressed.

Based on concrete examples, this course will be of interest to students looking to better understand the legal framework of setting up legal entities in China. The objective will be to give the audience a practical view of which entity can be set up in China and within which limits/framework and constraints.

Fourth, we will also cover the general framework of the labor PRC law and social protection of workers in China.
A specific focus on the rights and duties of employees/employers will be made.

Finally, the lecture will end by giving an overview of Intellectual Property Rights in China.
