This course will examine developments in Chinese law since the ascension of President Xi Jinping in 2012. Topics will include new forms of courts and judicial guidance, anti-corruption campaign and policies, regulation of the legal profession, and constitutional amendments. The course will focus not merely on the technical details of particular developments but will use these developments as an entry point into discussing broader questions on the role of law in contemporary Chinese governance. Prior knowledge of China and its legal system will be helpful but is not required.
