Abstract:     
This chapter provides background facts about the Chinese legal system, including the different sources of law and legal institutions in China. Importantly, the chapter analyzes how citizens are using the law in China by following one particular dispute as it winds its way through the layers of informal and formal institutions. To understand the Chinese legal system, one must understand not only how it is structured “on the books,” but also how it works “at the ground level.”
