The WTO Law Research Society (“WTOLRS”) is a nationwide academic institution affiliated with the China Law Society (“CLS”), which carries out special research on the WTO law and practice. CLS is composed of a group of experts led by the Communist Party of China. Established in June 1949, CLS is an umbrella society of legal studies in China. It is one of the oldest and most authoritative academic forums in the nation. WTOLRS was established on August 29, 2001 in Beijing, when China formally acceded to the WTO. At that time, the government, the enterprises, and the communities urgently needed to understand regular systems and operation mechanism of the WTO, in order to set down corresponding strategies. The demand for understanding the WTO rules pushed to establish WTOLRS.
