The National Legal Eagle
  • Tim Jay, Bond University


This article provides a very brief outline of the history of Chinese relations with the West, and the development of the Chinese Legal system from its origins to the present day. Having thus described the framework and environment within which a foreign lawyer practising in China must work, the article then proceeds to examine the options available to a foreign qualified lawyer seeking to practise law in the People’s Republic of China (PRC).
