Bridging the gap between the Chinese and the international dispute resolution community


The China Young Arbitration Group (CYAG) is a recent initiative launched at the end of 2012 by Clarisse von Wunschheim (WunschArb) , Edwina Kwan and Arthur Ma (Herbert Smith Freehills), and Huawei Sun, later joined by Hu Ke (King & Wood Mallesons) and Sun Wei (Zhonglun).

The CYAG provides young legal practitioners in China with an informal platform through which to network and share experience in the field of international arbitration. For this purpose, the CYAG organises regular events and invites renowned arbitration practitioners and academics to meet with young practitioners in Beijing to share their experience and insights in the fields of international arbitration and cross-cultural dispute resolution.

As China’s influence in the global economy increases, so the role of Chinese lawyers in international arbitration will increase too. The CYAG’s mission is to help young Chinese practitioners integrate into the international arbitration community by getting to know key players in the field, learning about international standards and common practice, and conducting inter-cultural dialogue.

Participation to CYAG events are free of charge. If you wish to participate, please send an email to and we will put you on our mailing list.

You can also join us on WeChat and LinkedIn.
