1. Law & Justice in China
2. Family Law in China
3. Criminal Law and Criminal Procedure in China

About the Legal Training Program

This legal training program has been specifically designed by Da Wo Law Firm Shanghai
for consular officers and agents of foreign representations who, as part of their tasks, are regularly providing consular support services to foreign nationals residing in China.
The aim is to provide them with a comprehensive understanding of the Chinese legal framework applicable to most of the “consular cases” they are liable to handle during their tenure in China.
The training sessions combine general background presentations with practical cases taken from our lawyers practice.
