China’s Legal Tradition and Its Modern Transition
Chinese law has a long history and can be divided into two main stages: the traditional law period and the modern-contemporary law period. The Chinese legal system, developed during the traditional period, embodies the characteristics of the combination of ritual and law, the family standard, and the unity of nature and man. The modern-contemporary legal system is the result of transplants and borrowing from other legal systems and it developed into a socialist legal system with Chinese characteristics. Traditional law has a great influence on contemporary times and constitutes the key to understand contemporary trends.
