Topic: Details of the the judiciary – Observing the operation of the modern judicial system in the context of small claims cases in the US.
Speaker: Zhou Dawei, Distinguished Fellow at the Legal Research Institute at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences (CASS) and visiting professor at the Beijing Institute of Technology Law School
The small claims system originated from the developed countries of Europe and the United States. In recent decades, despite the fact that academic circles have argued over the paradigm and efficiency of small claims cases, an indisputable fact is that the pattern of small claims is being borrowed by more and more countries and regions (including Hong Kong, Taiwan etc.). The trend of saving judicial resources and improving trial efficiency has become a difficult path for any country to turn away from in this age of economic globalisation. In this lecture, Prof. Zhou will analyse the details of the rule of law based on his experiences in the US.
