From the 02rd until the 06th of December 2019 a training course on judicial methodology in Contract law took place at the National Judges College in Sanya. Around 150 Chinese judges from all over the country participated and were introduced to the German methodology on the application of law. Under the guidance of Mr. Dr. Arnd Weishaupt, judge at the regional high court of Dusseldorf (Germany), the participants practiced the application of the techniques on practical cases under Chinese Contract law.
In cooperation with the National Judges College, the Sino-German Legal Cooperation Programme organizes several courses on judicial methodology a year. The aim of these courses is to promote a consistent and clear application of the law by the judiciary, thereby improving both the efficiency of Chinese courts and legal certainty for citizens.
