Scholars, jurists, and policy-makers in every major jurisdiction in Asia are debating, and sometimes reforming, the selection and appointment of judges, the role of specialized courts, the autonomy and accountability of the judiciary, the use of foreign law, and the legitimacy and capacity of judicial institutions to address political issues. This symposium brings together prominent jurists and leading academics from the U.S., China, India, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, and Hong Kong to engage in a pathbreaking open dialogue on these and other issues critical to the successful operation of every nation’s legal system.
