A TEAM of Chinese judges from the city of Wuhan attended two conferences on English commercial, civil and criminal law this week as part of a legal fact-finding tour of Manchester, Wuhan's twin city.
The conferences were hosted by Mason's partner Edward Davies. The delegation, headed by Yu Cuzhong, vice-director of the Wuhan Intermediate People's Court, wants to see how foreign law works and how it can be applied in China.
Davies said: "Commercial legislation in China is coming forward at a significant rate and the legal framework is developing rapidly. The central government sees an area in which action needs to be taken and is acting quickly."
Benny Chen, an associate at Mason's Guangzhou office, is in Manchester to gain six month's experience in UK commercial law.
