Quinn Emanuel Conducts Mock Trial Program in Beijing


In conjunction with the Jun He Law Offices, the firm recently conducted a mock jury trial program in Beijing for General Counsel of 121 Chinese state-owned enterprises. The trial—based on an intellectual property dispute—consisted of openings, directs, cross-examinations, and closings, which were simultaneously translated. Witness examinations were conducted in real time and were unrehearsed. Visual aids and evidence were used just as they would be used at trial. Two separate juries, consisting of Chinese citizens and U.S. expatriates, deliberated until they reached a verdict. So far as the participants were aware, this was the first ever U.S. style mock trial conducted in China.
