The Rise and Fall of Chinese Legal Education: 1978-2011

The University of Kansas School of Law presents a talk with Carl Minzner.

March 14, 2012 12:30pm to 12:00am

Carl Minzner, Fordham University

Chinese authorities are reconsidering legal reforms they enacted in the 1980s and 1990s. These reforms had emphasized law, litigation, and courts as institutions for resolving civil grievances between citizens and administrative grievances against the state. But social stability concerns have led top leaders to question these earlier reforms. Central Party leaders now fault legal reforms for insufficiently responding to (or even generating) surging numbers of petitions and protests.
