The summer school was open to PhD candidates, young teachers, and MA students interested in intellectual property law, particularly copyright law. The offered program aimed at broadening the knowledge (e.g. basic theories, development, and management both current and proposed) of national and international copyright law and its relation to international trade through lectures and workshops given by distinguished experts from internationally well-known law schools and research centers. A related purpose was to enhance the communication and cooperation between the participating law schools and research centers. Coordinating partner on the Chinese side was Prof.Ma Zhiguo, dean of the Xi'an School of Law. The program was divided into 25 lectures, all focussing on the status quo and the future development of actual copyright law, both nationally and internationally.
