This is Part 3.

In 1960, Jerome A. Cohen, a young law teacher at Berkeley who had clerked for two U.S. Supreme Court justices, accepted an offer to study a subject that was virtually unknown — the legal system of the People's Republic of China. That decision marked the beginning of a long career in which Professor Cohen would advise Henry Kissinger on Sino-American rapprochement, be the first Western lawyer based in Beijing under the Communist regime and advocate for human rights throughout East Asia. Starting last fall, Professor Cohen gave a series of informal talks on LIFE, LAW AND ASIA now available online.

These videos not only educate and entertain but also serve as the material for an upcoming memoir as well as a feature-length documentary being produced and directed by Vanessa Hope. One hour-long talk will be released weekly on NYU School of Laws US-Asia Law Institute's website, where Professor Cohens full biography can also be found.
