Glasgow team participates in China–Britain International Symposium

In March, the University of Glasgow School of Law’s Competition Law team (Professors Rosa Greaves and Mark Furse, and Dr Sandra Marco Colino) were participants in the 'China–Britain International Symposium on Development of the Competition Law and Policy – Sharing Experience' at the South West University of Political Science and Law in Chongqing, China. The symposium was attended by Chinese academics, practitioners and graduate students, and those who were present greatly enjoyed their two days. The main focus of the symposium was on learning from each others' experiences, and participants found this very valuable. Papers delivered by the Glasgow team will be published in a Chinese journal.

University of Glasgow, School of LawThe School is committed to engagement with Chinese academia and with Chinese students across a range of subjects. Mark Furse has published articles relating to Chinese competition law, and Professor Iain MacNeil, whose work is in the area of company law and corporate governance has taught and delivered presentations in China. Mark Furse will be based in East Asia for the first semester of the coming academic year, and will return to Glasgow for the second semester when he will be able to share some of his newly-acquired knowledge of competition laws in East Asia. OUP will be publishing a book by Professor Furse dealing with competition law in China and its neighbours in 2009.
