In 2010, as a judicial reform measure, the Supreme People’s Court issued provisions establishing a legal framework in which certain judgments of China’s courts would be selected and re-issued as Guiding Cases (“GCs”), which, though not explicitly binding, are meant to guide the adjudication of subsequent similar cases and to ensure the uniform application of law in China.


The China Guiding Cases Project (“CGCP”) advances the understanding of Chinese law associated with GCs and helps China develop a more transparent and independent judiciary. The CGCP carries out this mission by engaging experts around the world in contributing to a unique knowledge-base and by undertaking capacity-building activities, including legal education reform, training of judges and lawyers, and public education and participation.
