Ji Li is Professor of Law at Rutgers University and a member of the Associate Faculty of the Division of Global Affairs. Professor Li received a Ph.D. in political science from Northwestern University and a J.D. from Yale Law School where he was an Olin Fellow in Law, Economics and Public Policy. Before joining the Rutgers faculty, he practiced corporate and tax law for several years in the New York office of an international firm. Professor Li’s teaching and scholarship explores a broad range of topics including international business transactions, taxation, contracts, comparative law, Chinese law, and empirical legal studies.
His first book, The Clash of Capitalisms? Chinese Companies in the United States, published by Cambridge University Press, explores the adaptation of Chinese companies, including state-owned Chinese companies, to general US institutions and their compliance (or lack of compliance) with US laws governing tax, employment equality, and national security review of foreign investments. His second book, which is in progress and under contract with Cambridge University Press, presents a unified theory to analyze judicial behavior in China.
