The Initiative has since been a topic of broad discussion at all levels. Although its tremendous significance for local, regional and global developments has been widely acknowledged, the discourse on the opportunities and challenges of the Initiative for the legal profession is only starting to emerge. At the Chinese University of Hong Kong ("CUHK"), the Faculty of Law and the University's Global China Research Programme have partnered to embark on a major research project that explores the legal and policy aspects of the Initiative. Joining hands with a distinguished team of internationally leading experts, seven CUHK Faculty of Law professors (Professors Jyh-An LEE, Michelle MIAO, Gonzalo VILLALTA PUIG, Lutz-Christian WOLFF, Chao XI, Yan XU and Mimi ZOU) have collectively engaged in an intellectual joint venture that leads to a recent milestone publication with Wolters Kluwer entitled Legal Dimensions of China's Belt and Road Initiative. One of the first English-language volumes on this topic, this edited volume discusses many open questions from the legal point of view to establish a framework for policy initiatives and legislative projects. It also serves as a theoretical basis for future research, and offers practical up-to-date guidance on the current status of the Belt and Road Initiative. For details about the book, please refer to www.law.cuhk.edu.hk/OBOR_Book.
