CHINA LEGAL SCIENCE
China Legal Science, sponsored by the China Law Society and published
by China Legal Science Journals Press, is hereby formally founded. This is a
significant event for Chinese jurisprudential circles. This Journal will focus on
introducing achievements of China's legal construction, publishing Chinese
legal research results, and devoting itself to providing a new platform for
academic exchanges between China and foreign countries.
It has been 30 years since Deng Xiaoping proposed the reform and
opening up policy in China. During these 30 years, China has been undergoing
essential changes in every corner of society. Notably, China's legal system has
made many achievements which command the attention of the world, such as
putting forward the fundamental policy of governing the country in accordance
with the law, establishing socialism with Chinese characteristics, enhancing
governing capacity of the ruling party, safeguarding human rights, promoting
economic development, improving legal environment and judicial justice,
conducting administration by law, and strengthening the restriction and
supervision of power. In addition to researching and implementing some
Western advanced legal theories and systems, China's jurisprudential circle has
put forward many legal theories and systems with Chinese characteristics that
can solve China's modem issues by keeping a close relationship with China's
actual conditions. Today, all these legal theories and systems have become
important parts of a socialist legal system with Chinese characteristics. All
these achievements tell us that socialism with Chinese characteristics has its
own advantages, and the socialist legal theory with Chinese characteristics has
its own progressive features and scientific nature. As a part of global legal
culture and legal experience as well as spiritual wealth of human society,
China's socialist legal theories should be studied and can be shared by different
countries. Therefore, at the time of studying other countries' advanced legal
cultures, China should also offer our legal construction achievements and legal
research results to foreign countries.
Establishing China Legal Science is an important measure to further
publicize China's legal construction achievements, show China's research
results of legal theories, continue the boom in China's legal research, and
promote legal exchanges between China and foreign countries. It is
unquestionable that after the establishment of China Legal Science, foreign
jurisprudential circles will comprehensively and accurately know the rule of
law conditions and the level of legal research in China. In addition, equal and
bilateral exchanges between various jurisprudential circles will be improved,
and the common development between different cultures and systems will be
promoted.
China Law Society (CLS), as the sponsor of China Legal Science, is
responsible for guiding the Journal's editing and publishing. CLS was founded
in 1949 as a national association of legal scholars, jurists, law practitioners and
an academic body of legal sciences. CLS pursues objectives of enriching legal
