The CICC Through the Eyes of Law Students

Looking for a quick guide to China International Commercial Court (CICC)? Here are brochures designed by law students of China University of Political Science and Law.

‘So, is there anyone willing to design a brochure for our China International Commercial Court?’ I asked, hoping at least one student to volunteer in. Surprisingly, over 20 students raised their hands, eager to take on the challenge. Last fall semester (2019-2020), I had 48 students in my class on Private International Law, all third- and fourth-year law students from the ‘pilot class of foreign-related legal talent training program’ (涉外法律人才培养实验班) at School of International Law, China University of Political Science and Law (CUPL). As a CUPL flagship educational program launched in 2013, the pilot-class project has provided more than 300 law students – chosen for their academic potentials and language proficiency– opportunities for gaining international perspectives, through tailored courses in international law and internship opportunities at in national, regional and international government agencies, such as those of the United Nations.

The idea of brochure designing comes from my visit to the Supreme Court of Singapore last summer. I was so impressed by the whole series of eye-catching multi-lingual brochures about the Singaporean judicial system. In particular, the brochure of the Singapore International Commercial Court (SICC)  is well-designed and informative. Naturally, it occurs to me that why not to design a brochure for our China International Commercial Court (CICC), since we don’t have one at hand by now.

For those interested in CICC, apart from its official website, a brochure could be a handy resource of featured information. The brochures designed by the law students provide us different perspectives of CICC, which, in a way, enrich our understanding of the newly-established international commercial courts in China.

Below are four CICC brochures I selected from all the brochures that CUPL law students designed. With their consent, the brochures are available for download, and all are licensed under CC BY-NC 3.0.
