A couple of years ago, we started a China Law Blog Group on Linkedin with the goal of creating a spam-free source for China networking, information and discussion. We now have  over 6,500 members. More importantly I am proud to say that our Linkedin group is a great place for lively discussions on China and for those seeking assistance on China business and law issues.  And we have kept it spam-free.  As far as I know, no spam item has yet lasted on the site for anything approaching 24 hours and less than a handful have ever made it up at all.

All of this has made us (by far) the largest China Law Group on Linkedin.  If you are looking for a forum on China Law and Business on Linkedin, you should at least check us out.

We usually have anywhere from one to five new discussions each day and it is the rare discussion that doesn’t generate at least a few comments.  We have had some absolutely terrific discussions, both based on the numbers (a number of the discussions have received around 100 comments and some have gone over 200) and on their substance. Our discussions have ranged from practical (such as, how do I get my money out of China or what are the best practices for a China Joint Venture) to deep think (such as, will China ever improve its protection of intellectual property?).

Our membership, which we have chosen to keep closed as one of our many methods for keeping out spam, is incredibly diverse:

  • 23% of our members are in “senior” level positions
  • 14% of our members are in “entry” level positions
  • 11% of our members are “managers”
  • 9% of our members are company “owners”
  • 9% of our members are company “directors”
  • 6% of our members are Vice Presidents
If you are interested in learning more about China law or business, if you want to discuss China law or business, if you want to network with others doing China law or business, or if you are simply interested in what it takes to do business in China or with China, I suggest you check out our China Law Blog on Linkedin and join up. The more people in our group, the better the discussions.
