Dear Friend:

We are pleased to share with you that Jacques deLisle will speak on Territorial Disputes in East/South China Sea at the ICAS Winter Symposium on February 15 2013 in Washington DC.

He spoke before the ICAS audience in 2000.

Jacques is Stephen A. Cozen Professor of Law, professor of political science, director of the Center for East Asian Studies and deputy director of the Center for the Study of Contemporary China at the University of Pennsylvania, and director of the Asia Program at the Foreign Policy Research Institute. He has been a visiting professor and visiting scholar at several universities in East Asia and elsewhere. Jacques's scholarship focuses on China’s engagement with the international legal order (including sovereignty issues, human rights and other matters), domestic legal reform and its relationship to economic and political change in China, Taiwan’s international status and cross-Strait relations, and U.S. -China relations. He has served in the Office of Legal Counsel, U.S. Department of Justice, as a law clerk to then-Judge Stephen G. Breyer, and as an expert witness in numerous cases involving issues of Chinese law. He has a J.D. degree from Harvard Law School, was a graduate student in political science at Harvard, and received an A.B. from Princeton.

Thank you.
