Dr. Yedan Li (Bielefeld University)
Through thirty years of legal reform, law and legal institutions begin to play important roles in civil disputes. Critiques often point to the limits on judicial independence and the lack of legal profession as obstacles to the “rule of law”, and its limited function of achieving justice. However,this conclusion is often made by identifying and measuring the Chinese legal system in terms of an ideal Western legal system. In her presentation, Yedan Li analyzes the Chinese legal institution’s function on civil dispute resolution from two layers, the first is to understand it from China’s own logic rather than drawing simple analogy with the ideal Western legal system; and the second is to understand it from its practice rather than the law on paper.
