May at LCF
Our May programme includes Seminar No. 5 of our 5-piece “New Voices in investor protection” Series as part of out “Forum: financial regulation and civil liability.” Seminar 5 presents Dr. Lin Lin’s new book Venture Capital Law in China (Cambridge University Press, 2021) on 27th May 2021, generously supported by CUP. Participants also get a 30 % discount on the price of this book. We are very grateful to our panel of distinguished experts in the field of international financial services law and venture capital law for their commitment to join author Dr. Lin and our Forum members to discuss this topical issue. The seminar will be more than a straight book launch but will also draw a connection to the recent EU regulation on foreign direct investment (FDI) which might affect VC investors and developers. Our academic forum is therefore also joined by two practitioners from DLA Pipers law firm who are researching in this field.
We offer discounts on our small subscription prices for students and package purchases. Check out our website and Eventbrite ticket platform.
If you missed the events, the recordings are available from Eventbrite and from our website for a small fee. It is also possible to subscribe to unlimited viewing of all our current and upcoming event recordings for a year for a more comprehensive price.
LCF gratefully acknowledge generous support of the event on 27th May 2021 by CUP
