Seven years after China established its system of Guiding Cases (i.e., de facto binding precedents), the country is ready to take another groundbreaking step: building a case system that focuses on intellectual property. Will this system be more in line with stare decisis, with judgments rendered by China’s IP courts considered formally binding? Will the database being built to support this new system be open to the public to promote understanding and facilitate legal practice? How might foreign parties, including U.S. businesses and innovators, be able to leverage this new development to better protect their legal rights and interests?
To answer the above questions, Dr. Mei Gechlik, Founder and Director of the CGCP, will moderate a Guiding Cases SeminarTM featuring the following distinguished speakers. Stanford Law School Dean Elizabeth Magill will open the event.
