1 IBA Scholar Report On Auckland Conference 2004 By Mr. Bai Xianyue from Zhang Ying Law Office ng the IBA Conference as one of the It has been a great experience attendi IBA scholars in Auckland this Oct ober where I met many intelligent and sharp international collea gues, experienced veterans of attorneys, legal experts, specialists in various lega l disciplines, and legal practitioners from different legal culture. Personally I think this conference was very well organized and very successful. I fully enjoyed the one-week event with so many interesting seminars and discussions on various legal topics. Several of the sessions, delivered by several IBA committees which I attended had been very informative and insightf ul on their particular subjects. I would like to take this chance to reflect upon my enriching experiences in Auckland and summarize in what ways this IBA arative study of legal practices and conference helps me to make a comp adopt an international perspective on how to benefit from exchange of ideas, sharing of legal expertise , socializing with international ine the its relevance to my career counterparts etc, in the meantime exam in China . nd Oct, when ther e was the special On the first day of the Conference, 22 session for young lawyers and IBA schola rs, I enjoyed the presentations by Mr. Lock who talked about Project Financing and his personal legal practice experiences with Asian countri es. After the presentation, I had a

2 very pleasant private conversation with him and we soon found that there Energy, together in the committee of might be some chances to work since he will Environment, Natural Resour ces and Infrastructure Law become the rotating chair of this co mmittee after this IBA Conference in Auckland, thus taking charge for the sessions of next IBA annual committee would love to have more conference. He suggested that the ere there must be a huge market legal input from countries like China wh for this particular legal field, whic h is true indeed. Across the nation, there are hundreds of big infrastructu re projects like power plant, water resources project etc in progress a nd even more being planned, which provides enormous legal service ma rket of this area for lawyers. Mr. Lock then asked me whether I would like to join him and his colleagues in their next conference and become part of their team to put together next IBA conference. I gave it some thoug ht and happily accepted his kind invitation after I returned from Auckland to China, although I do not know yet what I can c ontribute to this committee, which I am ashamed to say. th g lawyers , together with quite a of Oct, I joined many of the youn On 28 number of IBA scholars in the la unching session of IBA Young Lawyers Committee, which was really exciti ng and lively since the interaction between the panel of guest speakers and the audience revealed some of the key issues that the young committee has to figure out, which are also

3 of concern for young lawyers. I also made a very brief remark on the e limit on the future membership of point of whether there should be an ag by two young lawyer representatives this committee. The presentations from New Zealand and two from Austra lia, as well as the president of The Bar of England and Wales were very impressive, through which I learned many practices and experien ce in those countries designed to assist and guide young lawyers in thei r early stage of career. During the session, the interim organizing chai rman of this committee invited the participants to volunteer to become the national representatives of their country. I expressed my interest in taking up this position, if possible ,by leaving my business card and would l ove to play a role in this new committee. session, I have been invited to give Inspired by what I learned from this a presentation during a legal forum here in my city, on 20th November on the experience of other countries on wh at the Bar Association can do to facilitate the adjustment of newly ad mitted lawyers. Coincidentally, this year’s China lawyer legal confer ence sponsored by All China Bar Association in October, a high-pro file annual event in Chinese legal community, also had its theme for th at conference focused on the growth and development of young lawyers’ lega l practice. There is no doubt that the challenges confronted by young lawyer’s and their concerns have increasingly attracted the attention of Chinese national as well as local

4 bars. In contrast with other devel oped countries, young lawyers in China t where there is not sufficient face very tough practice environmen ease the adjusting period for them, specific enabling program intended to who are usually left to explore the so metimes treacherous terrain, at their own risk. Trial and error is more of ten than not the norm rather than ous professional exception, which is very problematic, giving rise to vari risks and liability issues. Just as in other countries, young lawyers, among other things, have to face up to the enormous financial pressure , given the fact that they are newcomers a nd do not have major income sources. Bar associations in China still have many daunting tasks to accomplish and the potential for them to impr ove their performance remains huge. That’s why it’s not surprising that I find the Young Lawyer Committee just set up by IBA very relevant to what I experienced and witnessed in China as a young lawyer myself. What some of the speakers shared with the audience intrigued me and I want to learn more of their experiences in this regard. I hope my future interac tions with my colleagues of IBA in other countries will shed some light on many of the seemingly baffling problems faced by many young Chinese lawyers and introduce the effective measures and practices of other countries to Bar of Tianjin , where I will make an effort to dissemi nate related helpfu l and effective measures and information to my Chinese colleagues. And next year’s China lawyer’s annua l conference will take place in my

5 city, to be hosted by Bar of Tianjin, a nd one of the senior partners of my firm is now the chairman of Tianjin Bar. I expect that it will be a great chance to for me to get involved in the organizational work in preparation for this event assisted by my e xperience with IBA and the Young Lawyer’s Committee in particular. In conclusion, I would like to express my heart-felt thanks to people who have made this IBA conference possible and those who have shared their experiences during that one exciting w eek in Auckland. I have benefited very much from this fantastic event. Yours Sincerely Mr. Xianyue BAI of Zhang Ying Law Firm Tianjin China
