On Tuesday 25th of July The British Chamber of Commerce Southwest China hosted a Panel Discussion about Chinese Law with Projects Abroad for a group of secondary school students who are very interested in Chinese law. The event was held in the boardroom of the British Business Centre in Chengdu.
Jenny Liu from Sichuan Sheng Ming Law Office gave the students an interesting presentation into Chinese Law and spoke in depth about the seven Judicial branches of Chinese Law. Jenny then made many comparisons to European, UK and American systems. The talk was followed by a Q&A session where Jenny answered the students questions.
Once the Q&A session had ended, the students took part in a debate about the pros and cons of a new law being proposed in China whereby children can be prosecuted for not seeing their parents enough. Both sides made good arguments fighting their views on the law change and was completed with a vote.
This interesting insight into Law and China came to a climax when the students watched some compelling videos from Law professionals. Project Abroad students went away feeling fulfilled they had learnt something worthwhile and have a greater understanding into Chinese Law which they will able to use in their further studies.
