U.S. Ambassador to China to Address Workshop on Chinese Legal Reform
U.S. Ambassador to the People's Republic of China Clark T. Randt Jr. will address the Workshop on Chinese Legal Reform, a program of the China Law Center at Yale Law School, about "U.S.-China Relations and Rule of Law Developments," on Wednesday, September 17, at 4:10 p.m., in the Slifka Center, 80 Wall Street. The talk is open to the Yale University community.
Clark Randt, as ambassador to china, is at the center of not only the negotiations between two nations but also issues of concern to the whole world--whether it's the recently concluded six-nation talks about the status of North Korea's nuclear weapons program, or a dispute over the value of China's currency, or concern for China's human rights record.
He also brings a wealth of experience to issues of Chinese law and policy. He is a lawyer himself, is fluent in Chinese Mandarin, and has lived in Asia for nearly twenty years. He has served as first secretary and commercial attache at the U.S. Embassy in Beijing and as a partner and head of the China practice in the law firm Shearman & Sterling, among other positions.
