This subject encourages students to develop an understanding of the political, social and economic forces which influence the purpose and shape of law in the People's Republic of China. The subject provides students with an overview of the legal system and legal institutions in China. We examine the nature of legal controls over the exercise of state power and the extent to which they are effective. Legal principles that govern relations between citizens and the state and that provide for special treatment of certain groups will also be considered. Developments in the regulation of economic activities such as trade, investment and labour will be discussed.
