From the 17th until the 21rd of May 2021 a training course on judicial methodology in civil law took place at the National Judges College in Beijing. Around 137 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. Norbert Feige, legal advisor of the Sino-German Legal Cooperation Program, the participants practiced the application of the techniques on practical cases under Chinese criminal law.
In cooperation with the National Judges College, the Sino-German Legal Cooperation Program 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.
