Abstract

The article sets out the author's thoughts on two aspects of China's Supreme People's Court (SPC) soft law—its judicial policy documents and cases that it has specially selected. The article sets out a taxonomy of both and concludes with thoughts about why the SPC relies on soft law to guide the lower courts in applying the law and judicial interpretations in hearing cases.

Keywords: Supreme People's Court, soft law, judicial documents
