Dr. Hao Jiang joins Tulane Law School as a visiting assistant professor for the Fall 2017 semester. He teaches comparative private law. A doctrinal scholar in contract law, business law, comparative law, private law theory, Dr.Jiang’s research is built upon historical and comparative analysis of law and focuses on the theoretical difficulties that the normative theories have encountered over the time and across the jurisdictions. He has published in the U.S., China and France. His publications can be found in journals such as NYU Journal of Law and Business, George Mason Journal of International Commercial Law, Journal of Civil Law Studies, and chapters in books such as Comparative Tort Law by Edward Elgar and Comparative Law and… by Presses universitaires d’Aix-Marseille among others. 

Dr. Jiang’s current research projects include whether unjust price and unfair terms alone shall become vitiating factors in contract law and, the consequences of the abolishment of cause in French contract law and its existing functions in Italian and Louisiana law, and whether the Delaware Court of Chancery’s recent requirement of material disclosure in approving disclosure only settlements would actually serve the purpose of achieving fairness in class action settlement.

Dr. Jiang earned his first law degrees both in China and at Tulane. He also has earned an LLM in international and comparative law and written his doctoral dissertation on the inapplicability of freedom of contract to Chinese state-owned enterprises. In his dissertation, he focused on recent Chinese legal history and its unique economic conditions; he compared Chinese contract law theory with Soviet civil law theory and Western contract and corporate governance theories. He proposed a paternalistic approach in Chinese contract law in response to incomplete market conditions. He started his teaching career in 2014 as a visiting professor in France at Université Panthéon Assas (Paris II) and then in Italy at Università Degli Studi Di Trieste. He has also been a research fellow at Eason Weinmann Center of Comparative and International Law at Tulane and a visiting research fellow at Max Planck Institute for Comparative and Private International Law in Hamburg. Dr. Jiang has given lectures and presentations at leading law schools in North America, Europe and China.

Dr. Jiang briefly clerked at Chinese Supreme Court and was in private practice for six years as an of counsel for a Chinese firm and an American firm.
