Judgeship in Your Early 20’s? Not a Myth in China.

11 February 2015 | 12:00 - 13:00 | Seminar

Presenter: Alison(Lu) Xu (PhD Candidate, School of Law)

This Seminar aims at providing some in-depth knowledge about judge-selection process and judgeship in China. In recent years, most of the newly recruited judges in China are in their early 20s. Generally, it is the current judge-selection process that enables young law school graduates to join the judgeship directly after graduation. However, being a judge in China, especially in the city of Beijing, does not look like a promising occupation, in terms of salary, benefits and the chance of getting promotion, comparing to other legal professions as lawyers or in-house counsels. Thus, what makes a judge rope so appealing that young law students would jump onto the boat without even slight hesitation? What skills, qualifications and personal characters should a person have in order to succeed in the highly competitive recruitment? These are the central questions to be discussed in this seminar.

This is a free seminar open to all and lunch will be available. If you are planning on attending please e-mail a.j.c.butcher@leeds.ac.uk
