Preeminent Treatise - This is recognized by scholars and practitioners as one of the leading authorities on a specific subject. What is foreign law ? It is the national (also referred to as domestic or internal) law of any country other than the United States and usually refers to constitutions, legislation, and cases. Foreign law has no effect outside the foreign jurisdiction, but it may regulate foreign entities within state boundaries. Comparative law is "the study of the similarities and differences between the laws of two or more countries, or between two or more legal systems. Comparative law is not itself a system of ...
up to 1911, when the last imperial dynasty fell. It has undergone continuous development since at least the 11th century BC. This legal tradition is distinct from the common law and civil law traditions of the West , and to a great extent, is contrary to the concepts of contemporary Chinese law. It incorporates elements of both Legalist and Confucian traditions of social order and governance. Two traditional Chinese terms approximate "law" in the modern sense. The first, fa (法), means primarily "norm" or "model". The second, lü (律), is usually rendered as "statute". It originally seems to ...
Chinese Law Prof Blog: Law on the books vs. law in action
More than one observer has commented that while all societies show a gap between law on the books and law in action, in China the gap often seems wider. Without expressing an opinion on the (ultimately somewhat pointless) empirical comparative question, let me offer an observation about the procedure for obtaining a driver's license in China. This is reproduced (with permission) from an e-mail from a long-term foreign resident of Beijing doing business there. Mine was a steal at two US silver dollars (a friendly gesture in the spirit of cultural exchange) plus 10 kuai for the "physical" (the first time around, I had to buy ... market research, surveys and trends
chinese company (corporate) and contract law
Yesterday we had Company Law.  I think my observations below about Contract Law today sum up my feelings about Company Law (Corporations).  Essentially, China has adopted more or less wholesale (with some minor exceptions in scope and details) the Corporation law of the US (and maybe a little bit from other states). Today we got exposed to Chinese contract law.  The law seems to be more or less a duplicate of the CISG (Which my contracts class did not cover in any detail), with is only somewhat different from the UCC in that it seems to match civil law traditions.  For instance, no need for consideration in formation of ... market research, surveys and trends

Falun Gong Appeals Chinese Regime's Intervenor
TORONTO—Falun Gong practitioners are appealing a decision by an Ontario Superior Court judge that would allow the All China Lawyers Association to intervene in their genocide lawsuit. ACLA brought a motion to intervene in the case of Rong Jin, a Falun Gong practitioner who was tortured in China. Jin is suing Bo Xilai for torture she suffered while a student in mainland China. Although the Chinese regime has not responded to the suit, ACLA has. According to David Matas, one of two lawyers representing Jin, ACLA has requested intervenor status in suits brought against the Chinese regime all over the world. Malcolm Ruby, who ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
India Journal: Law and Disorder
What do the apparent suicide of supermodel and former Miss Mauritius, the conviction of Keshub Mahindra of criminal negligence in the Bhopal gas tragedy, and the recent nationwide “bandh” (strike) have in common? Apart from the obvious differences, an important common thread is the Indian legal and judicial system. The three events in recent weeks have drawn attention to some of its peculiarities and its failings. The case of Viveka Babajee seemed on the face of it open and shut: a series of setbacks in her personal and professional life, according to news and police reports, may have led her to the brink. This being ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

WikiAnswers - How does China practice their religion
The main religions of modern mainland China are Buddhism, Daoism (or Taoism), Islam and Christianity. Buddhism and Daoism are tolerant religions and many Chinese followers of these religions seek comfort in the other or in Confucianism, when needed. Ancient Chinese folk religion also forms an additional basis for faith. Buddhism is more widely followed by urban Chinese, while Daoism is more widely followed by rural Chinese. There are active Buddhist and Daoist temples all over China. However, people usually only go to the temples on special occasions. Faith and good works seem to be preferred over overt worship. Also, many ...
Seventh Day Adventist sabbath and practice question? - Yahoo! Answers
I have a neighbor who has 3 small children and a Seventh Day Adventist I just learned. I am planning on throwing my 4 year old son a small get together with cake and a clown.
