Abstract

Legal Origin Theory is applied to Reform China's legal system in order to create a development model for a national legal system influenced by multiple legal families. Utilizing an extensive literature review and assessment of national laws affecting property rights, the model depicts how a legal system develops on the national level under multiple normative influences. Further research will elaborate on the interactions between the normative influences within the legal system.

Keywords: law and economics, China, property rights theory, legal origin theory
