China Law and Society Review

The China Law and Society Review provides state-of-the-art review articles on research about the development and functioning of law and legal institutions in China. It focuses on reviewing interdisciplinary socio-legal research that analyses law in action in China. It publishes commissioned articles by leading senior scholars as well as emerging talent from across the globe. First issues will center on legal institutions, such as the courts, legal profession, legislators, prosecutors, the media, the party, and civil society organizations. Later issues will look in more depth at the development and functioning of substantive areas of law, including tort, labor, environment, intellectual property, criminal, and corporate law. In each issue cross-cutting themes will emerge which are likely to include legal consciousness, access to justice, rule of law, enforcement and compliance, regulatory strategies, law and development, ethics and corruption, judicial independence, central-local relations, and formal and informal institutions. Where deemed interesting, publications are to position the literature on China in a broader comparative context, in order to analyze China’s special characteristics as well as draw out theoretical significance. In the course of its publication the Review will establish a comprehensive and authoritative account of Law and Society in China. By updating the electronically published articles on set intervals, the timeliness of the reviews will be ensured. The Review will be of interest to scholars of Chinese law, Chinese politics and governance, Chinese business, as well as Chinese society. Moreover it will be of interest to public and private practitioners seeking to understand how to deal with law and legal institutions in the Chinese context.
