Library of Selected Cases from the Chinese Court

ISSN: 2662-5261

​This series focuses on telling Chinese legal stories in Chinese voices, vividly and intuitively demonstrating the concept, achievements and real-world experience of socialist rule of law with Chinese characteristics.      In addition, it is intended to further comparative research on Chinese and foreign cases, promote international legal exchanges, and contribute Chinese judicial wisdom and judicial experiences to global governance.
The cases presented in the series are strictly selected by the trial departments of the Supreme People’s Court from their concluded cases, which include guiding cases of the Supreme People’s Court; cases deliberated on by the Judicial Council/Committee of the Supreme People’s Court; and cases discussed at the Joint Meetings of Presiding Judges from the various tribunals. These cases are of great significance in terms of revealing or clarifying the application of legal rules, establishing new methods of adjudication, and filling in legal loopholes or gaps. The writers are the presiding judges for the respective cases, and possess substantial experience in making judicial decisions. Their familiarity with the facts of the case, legal thinking and reasoning, the decisional methodology and the application of the law makes them ideally suited to conveying to readers the legal processes, legal methodology and ideology in an intuitive, clear, and accurate manner.
This series aims to: a) improve the guiding case system and promote consistency regarding the applicable standards of law; b) contribute to a harmonious society by employing judicial rationality; and c) share China’s judicial wisdom with the rest of the world and foster international legal exchanges.
