Teng Biao is a prominent Chinese human rights lawyer and a vocal supporter of human rights activists. Therefore he has been arrested in 2008 and 2011.

He has long been one of the leading Chinese intellectuals and writers to demonstrate great courage in speaking out in support of Tibetans, especially in the wake of the wide-scale Tibetan protests that took place in 2008. Teng Biao’s efforts to help organize legal assistance for Tibetans contributed to authorities refusing renewal of his law license.

Furthermore Teng Biao is the president of the organization «China Against the Death Penalty» and a founding member of Gongmeng (Open Constitution Initiative), a Beijing-based lawyer’s organization and think tank. Currently he is a visiting scholar at Harvard Law School and at the US-Asia Law Institute, NYU.
