In order to cope with the legal challenges presented by the opening of the Chinese economy to the West, the legal system in China has been undergoing significant reform. In 1995 a new Judge's law came into effect after going through 30 draft revisions. This new law provided for sweeping changes in Chinese legal process. This book provides an overview of these reforms and explains what they mean for Westerners operating in China.
