Wykonywanie zawodów prawniczych w świetle ustawodawstwa chińskiego
Legal professions in the light of Chinese legislation
Languages of publication
While analysing provisions concerning legal professions in Mainland China, we can observe that the procedure of obtaining necessary qualifications is really complicated. It requires the approval of judicial administration department (of lower and upper level) and finally, the issuance of lawyer practice’s certificate. The same rules are applicable to the Chinese law firms. However, foreign law firms, which would like to provide legal service within the territory of the People’s Republic of China, need to comply with more restrictive requirements. Moreover, we can notice some changes in the Chinese legislation concerning lawyers’ professionalism and quality of legal service. The Communist Party of China makes some efforts to reduce corruption in the Chinese legal environment. Despite mentioned reforms, China still meets challenges related to the lawyers’ independence.
