About the Project
Lawyers play an important part in ensuring a functioning legal system: As the representatives of non-governmental and therefore less powerfully positioned litigants, lawyers are instrumental in shaping the level of confidence people have in their legal system. Strengthening the profession is therefore an important step in establishing a level playing field in the courtroom and, consequently, a fair trial. The lawyers’ exchange aims to provide support to China in its reform process of improving due process and sound legal protection. Another purpose is to foster the professional exchange between lawyers from the two nations.
