Mid-Autumn Festival Message from the Finnish China Law Center

The Finnish Center of Chinese Law and Chinese Legal Culture, an umbrella organization of 10 Finnish member institutions with global partners in the Nordic region, China and beyond, conveys its warmest wishes for this year’s Mid-Autumn Festival (中秋节).

‘It was a pleasure to be in China in the lead-up to this important holiday period’, Director of the Finnish China Law Center, Professor Ulla Liukkunen, says.

‘The success of the 9th Sino-Finnish Comparative Law Seminar, hosted by the Institute of Law of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences (CASS) in Beijing on 20 – 21 September, was no doubt in part due to the event’s auspicious timing’.

This year’s comparative law seminar with the CASS Institute of Law was doubly auspicious because it had, for the first time, broader Nordic representation.

In addition to participants from Finnish China Law Center member institutions the University of Eastern Finland, University of Turku, Hanken School of Economics, Lappeenranta University of Technology, University of Helsinki and the Center itself, the Nordic delegation also included scholars from universities in Denmark and Sweden.

‘It was a pleasure to welcome esteemed colleagues from Lund University, Professor Mia Rönnmar, Dean of the Faculty of Law, Professor Xavier Groussot, Pro Dean of the Faculty of Law, and Associate Senior Lecturer Ana Nordberg to speak at and contribute to this important annual academic conference’, Professor Liukkunen says.

The Nordic delegation also included Professor Ditlev Tamm and Assistant Professor Wen Xiang from the Faculty of Law of the University of Copenhagen, both of whom gave presentations during the seminar.

‘On behalf of the Finnish China Law Center and its member institutions, I hope our friends and colleagues in China – and throughout the world – enjoyed a rewarding holiday period with friends, family and their loved ones’, says Professor Liukkunen.
