Building a Western-Style Law Library in Shenzhen, China: Peking University School of Transnational Law
The speakers on this panel will share with the audience background on the Peking University School of Transnational Law and its unique curriculum offering a U.S.-style J.D. and a J.M. in Chinese law. The School of Transnational Law (“STL”) is located in Shenzhen which some consider to be the “Silicon Valley” of China. Speakers will then discuss the role of the STL Library in supporting the curriculum and scholarship of the international faculty of STL. The STL Library collects materials in both English and Mandarin Chinese and has developed partnerships with other libraries in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area to augment its collections. The speakers will introduce the services and resources of the STL Library, as well as sharing some of the difficulties and challenges the library is currently encountering. The presentation will also consider challenges typically not faced by law libraries in the West, including censorship and the “Great Firewall.” The panelists will allow time for questions and hope to take this opportunity to learn from the audience and seek collaborative opportunities with audience members.

Speakers:
Duncan Alford (Associate Dean and Director of the Law Library, Professor of Law, University of South Carolina)
Tessie Tian (Associate Director, Peking University School of Transnational Law Library)

Moderator:
Faye Jones (Director, Albert E. Jenner, Jr. Memorial Law Library, University of Illinois College of Law)
