Chinese contract law; theory and practice.

Zhang, Mo.



372 pages




Interest in China's law/legal system is growing as its economy expands. Zhang, a legal expert who has studied in China and at law schools in the US (namely, Temple U. and the U. of Pennsylvania), emphasizes that the modern Chinese legal system is an evolving one. Following historical context on enactment of the Law of Contract of the People's Republic of China in 1999, he discusses reform efforts since Chairman Mao's annulment of all previous regulations and the still unresolved issue of the lack of judicial independence. Most readers will be interested in China's treatment of the "foreign elements" in international contracts. Recent cases are cited to illustrate court decisions on contract law.
