STL Launches “Legal Frontiers” – A New Podcast
Peking University School of Transnational Law (STL) launched a new podcast named “Legal Frontiers: from the School of Transnational Law, Peking University, China”. The podcast was initiated by STL Assistant Professor Stephen Minas and is established to provide research-based analysis of developments in transnational law and legal practice. More specifically, it intends to examine the intersection of law and transnational challenges such as climate change, new technologies, public health and economic relations, as well as directions in transnational dispute resolution in the future in the forms of interviews, presentations and panel discussions.
In the first episode, STL Associate Professor Mark Feldman and professor Stephen Minas discussed the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on transnational arbitration, as well as broader developments in transnational dispute resolution (including arbitration, mediation and international commercial courts) at a time of both the claimed economic ‘decoupling’ between the United States and China and the promotion of ‘connectivity’ agendas such as China’s Belt and Road Initiative.
With its unique proficiency in both Chinese and American law, STL is using this relatively new medium as a distinctive pulpit to engage an international audience interested in transnational legal issues.
