Comments From Our Participants
“The scheduling was rather intense given work commitments…. I almost wanted to skip class on some days. But it was one of the things that you were glad you went for it after the event. I would strongly recommend this programme to lawyers working with Chinese parties.”

“The China Ready Programme was very engaging and useful in giving me an insight into the Chinese legal system, laws and cultural background. The course was well-organised and the trainers were knowledgeable and communicated the material in a way that was accessible and easy to understand. I would highly recommend this programme for anyone interested in the Chinese legal market.”
Rajah & Tann Asia
“… … …With the growing influence of the Chinese market, any in-house counsel like me would also have to learn on how to interact with the Chinese and how to appreciate the Chinese way of doing business.
The main difference between this programme and other traditional legal training is that ….a lot of practicalities are injected in the programme … I am pleased to validate this course as one that is not only suitable for all practicing lawyers but also for any lawyers who are interested in China…and the Chinese Legal System.”

“… …The Ministry of Law, Singapore and SPH Media have ultimately created an intense and colourful programme - made better by a wonderful group of coursemates who could ask the difficult questions I wanted to ask but didn't know how to….We analysed hundreds of Chinese contracts from M&As to tenancies to agreements to mediate. And, we also learnt how there's a power-distance etiquette to exchanging Wechat contact info.”
