Legal Reform in Northeast Asia:Implications for China
In recent decades, major programs of judicial and legal reform have been implemented in Japan, Korea and Taiwan. Besides introducing substantive legislation designed to deal with a global economy, these involved major institutional transformations of the legal system that had been fairly stable for decades. This talk analyzes legal reform in comparative perspective, arguing that the process can be understood as one of competitive modernization. This dynamic reflects regional understandings of law and legal institutions that are shared even in the very different institutional context of China today.

Venue: Council Chamber, 8/F ., Meng Wah Complex, HKU
