About the Lecture

No one is supposed to ignore the law! However, it is not always easy to know exactly what the Chinese law prescribes, especially for a foreigner living and/or working in China. In fact, it is possible that you or your family members have already broken laws or regulations without even knowing it, or without being aware of the seriousness of the responsibilities incurred.

This lecture will mainly focus on Chinese criminal law and explain how the criminal justice system works. Numerous examples will be described illustrating the risks incurred in terms of professional liability, public behaviour, parental responsibility for minor children, etc.
