Foundations of Chinese Law
The Foundations of Chinese Law is an LLB alternate unit and will count towards the LLB degree. It will be intensively taught at a partner university in China. The unit introduces students to the basic structure of the Chinese legal system, its laws and the legal culture. Through seminars and field trips to Chinese courts and law firms, the unit aims to develop your understanding of how the Chinese legal system has developed in its political and cultural contexts. It covers the Chinese legal system at the general level and in relation to specific law, such as contracts, foreign investment law, dispute resolution and procedure. The main topics of the unit will include:
- Chinese Legal System and Legal Institutions.
- China's Opening Up Policy and Law Reform.
- The Constitution and Administrative Law.
- Chinese Foreign Trade and Investment Law.
- Commercial Law in China.
- Legal Education, Legal Service and Judicial System in China.
- Chinese Legal Culture and Dispute Resolution.
