About

Established as a premier research entity to facilitate and further knowledge about the interaction between business and law in the U.S. and China.

Our Vision

The John & Marilyn Long U.S.- China Institute for Business and Law at UC Irvine has been established as a premier research entity to facilitate and further knowledge about the interaction between business and law in the U.S. and China. The Long U.S.- China Institute will foster understanding and respect leading to an atmosphere of equality and mutual benefit between the two nations.

Founding Mission Statement

The Long U.S.- China Institute will create a bi-lateral, open, and public platform by which Chinese and American scholars, industry leaders, policy makers and practitioners can connect, share ideas and foster broader understanding of the policy, business, legal and related social/economic challenges and opportunities that engage and affect them.

Our Focus

The Long Institute focuses on compliance, broadly defined as the interaction between business behavior and law. It seeks to understand how public and private law influence business behavior, but also how business shapes the content and meaning of such law.
