Jianlin Chen is an Assistant Professor of Law in the University of Hong Kong. He obtained his LLB from National University of Singapore, and his LLM and JSD from the University of Chicago. He is qualified to practice in Singapore and New York.

His nearly 30 academic publications reflect his research agenda of drawing on a combination of comparative perspectives and economic analysis to critically examine the unarticulated jurisprudential assumptions inherent in resources law, and to further develop an overarching theoretical inquiry that holistically examines the various forms of state interventions through the case study of natural resources management. He teaches Economic Analysis of Law, Business Associations, Commercial Law, Guided Research and Contract.
