This is the working glossary, and author's final version of the English translation of Part 8, Articles 1 - 68, Tort Liability Law, of the current draft (December 17, 2002) of the Civil Code of the People's Republic of China. The version published in China by Peking University Press in the journal SiFa [Private Law Review] contained no glossary, nor did the pinyin have phonetic tone marks.

This version is intended for use as teaching materials. The pinyin here - in both the glossary and the translation - does have phonetic tone marks.

A facsimile of the Si Fa version of the translation published in China is available on SSRN: Conk, George W., People's Republic of China Civil Code: Tort Liability Law, Private Law Review, Vol. 5, No. 2 (The 10th Issue), pp. 77-111, December 2005.
