Greetings from the Director

The John Marshall Law School and its Chinese Intellectual Property Resource Center serve as a bridge for IP professionals between the USA and China to engage in discussions and establish understandings of how and why IP is practiced.  We currently focus on educational programs that assist Chinese IP stakeholders to have a better understanding of Chinese IP issues.

As China continues to strenghten its laws and practices involving IP, we hope the Chinese IP Resource Center can play a small role in keeping the dialogues focused on mutually beneficial topics, such as differences in the treatement of IP concepts, providing historical perspectives on IP differences, etc.  The work of the Center is an extension of contributions by Professor Dorothy Li of the Asian Alliance over 20 years.  We are fortunate to have Prof. Li's everlasting wisdom to guide us through as we continue our efforts into the bright future of IP in the US and in China.

Arthur Tan-Chi Yuan.
