About this Unit
Foundations of Chinese Law is taught intensively at a selected Chinese university. 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 systems at the general level and in relation to specific law, such as contracts, foreign investment law, dispute resolution and procedure. Students will compare and reflect on key themes in Chinese and Australian law and practice.
