Jerome Cohen - the NYU professor and former partner in Paul Weiss - is the godfather and mentor of all all who study Chinese law in the U.S.
He recognizes China's great progress - in normalization of government, and in economic development. But he is a determined critic of anti-democratic practices. Among them are recent actions against dissenting lawyers and lawyers fr dissidents. Now is the aggrandizement of a sitting leader, putting him on a plane with familiar icons - Marx, Lenin, Mao Tse Tung; and now eliminating term limits for the PRC's President. - gwc
