Abstract

This essay is based on a speech that was part of the Tsinghua China Law Review's 10th Anniversary Symposium: China’s Role Under the Globalization of the Rule of Law. The essay discusses the important role that public perception and understanding of law plays in the success of the rule of law. Empirical studies concerning American and Chinese awareness and attitudes towards intellectual property rights are used to provide examples of legitimacy and functionality challenges for the rule of law.

Keywords: rule of law, intellectual property, China
