Life, Law and Asia: Conversations with Jerome Alan Cohen

In 1960, Jerome A. Cohen, a young law teacher at Berkeley who had clerked for two U.S. Supreme Court justices, accepted an offer to study a subject that was virtually unknown — the legal system of the People's Republic of China. That decision marked the beginning of a long career in which Professor Cohen would advise Henry Kissinger on Sino-American rapprochement, be the first Western lawyer based in Beijing under the Communist regime and advocate for human rights throughout East Asia. Professor Cohen has given a series of informal talks on LIFE, LAW AND ASIA now available online.
