About the Author

Randall Peerenboom is a Professor of Law at UCLA Law School. He obtained a B.A. in Philosophy, M.A. in Chinese Religion and Ph.D. in Philosophy before obtaining a J.D. from Columbia Law School. He has written extensively on Chinese law and philosophy. From 1994 to 1998, he practiced law with a major international law firm in Beijing. In addition to advising on various aspects of foreign investment in China, he often serves as an expert witness on PRC legal issues and is Of Counsel at Yiwen Law Firm. He is now working on a study of the relation between culture and human rights; an empirical survey of supervision of the judiciary in the PRC; and a philosophical exploration of a form of Confucian collectivism as an alternative to western liberal democracy.
