*Pre-order* An Introduction to the Chinese Legal System 5th ed by Albert Chen, published by LexisNexis.
An Introduction to the Chinese Legal System, first published in 1992, was one of the first books in English on the developing legal system of the People’s Republic of China. It provides a systematic account of this system’s history, constitutional structure, sources of law, major legal institutions (such as the courts, the procuratorates, the legal profession and the Ministry of Justice), as well as the basic concepts and principles of Chinese procedural and substantive law.
Besides updating our knowledge of recent major legal developments in China, this title provides a much-needed overview of the distinctive impact of the Xi Jinping era. During this period the startling and continuing increase in the political and economic importance of the People’s Republic of China (PRC) has made China’s law and practice a matter of world interest.
