ABOUT THE TALK

Since the mid-1990s, the reform of the Law of Criminal Procedure has been one of the most important law reform initiatives in mainland China. This reform has attracted great attention from the international community because of the tremendous effort to incorporate well recognised standards in international human rights law, especially those regarding due process and fairness in trials. In the lecture, Prof. Yue will introduce what has been changed in the Chinese criminal procedural law to incorporate these standards as well as the topics for debate and further reforms.
