Dr. Mei Gechlik is founder and director of Stanford Law School’s China Guiding Cases Project (“CGCP”). Formerly a tenured professor in Hong Kong, she has been a visiting faculty member at Peking University and the University of Vienna. Since its founding in 2011, the CGCP has become the premier source of translations and commentary on China’s de facto binding “Guiding Cases” (“GCs”), harnessing the strength of an international team of approximately 150 law students, lawyers, and translation professionals, as well as an advisory board of more than 40 distinguished experts, including justices from the U.S. Supreme Court and the Supreme People’s Court. Dr. Gechlik also founded and served as president and CEO of Good Governance International (GGI), a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, launching the pioneering China eGovernment Development Index project. She has also worked for the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, a Washington-DC think-tank, to testify before the U.S. Congress on China-related issues and to advise the United Nations and the Chinese government on implementing rule of law programs. Dr. Gechlik is admitted as a barrister in England, Wales, and Hong Kong and is a member of the Bar in New York and the District of Columbia. She received her JSD from Stanford Law School and her MBA in Finance from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania.
