In April 2014, leading scholars came to China to deliver lectures addressing fundamental areas of the common law, including property law, agency law, equity, criminal law, and tax law. These lectures explore the development, features, and application of their respective areas of the common law. In addition, the lectures compare aspects of the common law with the approach in civil law jurisdictions and, in particular, in China. By examining the development of the common law and stare decisis, one may gain insights into common law concepts, many of which are similar to those in the Chinese legal system.
