The China Law Center at Yale Law School received $10 million from the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation to support the center for for the next five years. The grant is one of the largest ever made to a Yale Law School Program. The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation makes grants to address the most serious social and environmental problems facing society and concentrates its resources on activities in education, environment, global development, performing arts and population. The foundation chose to support the China Law Center, which focuses on carrying out cooperative projects between the U.S. and Chinese experts on key issues of Chinese law and policy reform, in order to improve China’s legal system and create more effective business practices, said Paul Brest, president of the Hewlett Foundation. The China Law Center was founded in 1999 and partners with a range of Chinese institutions including law schools, courts, administrative agencies and non-governmental organizations to help reform movements in China. “This grant guarantees that Yale Law School will continue as the leading center of thinking and understanding regarding a country of surpassing importance, which enjoys deep historical ties with our university,” said Yale Law School Dean Harold Hongju Koh.
