The goal of the program is to foster a deeper understanding among practitioners, judges and policy makers of the increasingly important role of cross-border litigation, especially for Chinese and American companies. The program is an outgrowth of collaboration between Berkeley Law and Tsinghua Law.  It is produced by the Asia IP Project of the Berkeley Center for Law and Technology and is co-sponsored by the Berkeley Judicial Institute.
