Abstract from

The Development and Conception of Administrative Law in the PRC

Jianfu Chen

The development of administrative law in post-Mao China represents one of the most remarkable and impressive aspects of legal progress since 1978. Nevertheless there are many internal inconsistencies in the administrative legal system as well as definitional, hence practical, problems for the effective operation of administrative law in China. This article first reviews major features of the development of administrative law in China. An overview of the present legal framework of administrative law is then provided. Finally, the article analyses contemporary Chinese conceptions of administrative law in the PRC.
