“Where can I find the official version of this law that was just released?” “What is the legal status of this document titled ‘provisions’ or ‘measures’?” “Is this law or regulatory document currently effective?” These are a few common questions people may have when doing Chinese law research. For anyone who has had such questions or would like to enhance their expertise on the evolving Chinese legal system, we are offering a webinar titled New Laws of China and How to Find Them Online, on Thursday, June 17, 2021, at 2pm EDT.

Flyer announcing upcoming foreign law webinar created by Susan Taylor-Pikulsky.

The webinar will discuss the legal status and authority of various documents under China’s Law on Legislation, including laws passed by the National People’s Congress or its Standing Committee, State Council administrative regulations, departmental rules, local regulations and rules, and judicial interpretations, and how to find them online. In particular, the webinar will discuss the evolving official online publication of Chinese laws, regulations, and court decisions. Specific new laws, such as the Civil Code and Amendment XI to the Criminal Law, both passed in 2020, will be highlighted.

As part of the Law Library of Congress Legal Research Institute’s Foreign and Comparative Law Webinar Series, this webinar will be presented by Laney Zhang, foreign law specialist in the Global Legal Research Directorate of the Law Library of Congress. Ms. Zhang has authored reports, Global Legal Monitor articles, and blog posts on a wide range of topics on the laws of mainland China, Singapore, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Macau.
