Rachel Stern quoted in Inside Counsel, June 11, 2014

Looking at the big picture, Stern says there has been a “long string of detentions and arrests of politically-inclined lawyers” in China. “Since at least 2004, the Chinese authorities have been watching the legal profession carefully and cracking down on outspoken lawyers, especially those who refuse to listen to warnings,” Stern said.
