In 1998, President Jiang Zemin and President Bill Clinton agreed to a "Presidential Rule of Law Initiative" to expand bilateral cooperation in the field of law. In 2000, the Public Affairs Section of the American Embassy and the China University of Political Science and Law Publishing House -- as part of the Embassy's China Book Translation Program -- agreed on the long term goal of translating 100 American law textbooks into Chinese and publishing Chinese editions. The Embassy and the CUPSL Publishing House have also co-sponsored two conferences for legal translation experts. These are the titles in the "American Law Library" published to date.
