Internship Sector Overview
Law in China is currently undergoing gradual reform, as many elements inside and outside the country emphasize the need to strengthen the rule of law in China, especially regarding international trade. Globalization has spurred transformations in various areas of Chinese domestic law. For most of the history of China, its legal system has been based on the Confucian philosophy of social control through moral education, as well as the Legalist emphasis on codified law and criminal sanction. Following the Revolution of 1911, the Republic of China adopted a largely Western-style legal code in the civil law tradition. The establishment of the People's Republic of China in 1949 brought with it a more Soviet-influenced system of socialist law. However, earlier traditions from Chinese history have retained their influence, even to the present. Many international companies operating in China seek legal advice to help protect their brand and navigate the intricacies of the Chinese legal system.
