Abstract

This report depicts the development of comparative law scholarship in China in 2012, mainly based on an examination of the articles published in leading Chinese journals on comparative law. The first part introduces the general development of Chinese comparative legal studies in the past year; it also explains the methods and criteria for selecting the journals examined herein. Part two elaborates on the theoretical and specific issues studied by Chinese comparatists in 2012. Part three presents the main activities of comparative law in China, including major publications and academic exchanges. The report concludes that recent comparative law scholarship in China indicates the increased attention paid by Chinese scholars to the practical obstacles faced by China in her efforts to establish the rule of law.
