Schnader Hosts Asian American Bar Association Education Committee’s Presentation on Clean Energy in China

On March 15, 2011 by Schnader

As a result of extensive media coverage of pollution in China, most people don’t associate China with “clean energy.” But in seven short years, China has become the world leader in solar panel production. In fact, over half the world’s solar cells and panels were made in China in 2010. What does China’s increasing role in clean energy mean for the U.S. market? What are the major policy and legal issues driving growth in China, and how is it affecting the domestic legal industry? Is this a short- or long-term trend? While the press has portrayed the legal industry as shrinking, what practice areas are growing as a result of China’s burgeoning clean energy industry?

Join the Asian American Bar Association to discuss these questions with a panel of experts: Dr. Mei Gechlik, Stanford Law Lecturer and Distinguished Expert in China Rule of Law; Steven Recchia, Corporate Counsel at Suntech; and Scott Zimmerman, Associate in the Energy and Clean Tech Practice at Wilson Sonsini. Melissa S. Lor, an attorney with Schnader Harrison Segal & Lewis LLP and co-chair of the AABA Education Committee, will moderate the panel.
