The CGCP proudly publishes two new commentaries.
The Supreme People’s Court of China’s (“SPC”) recent issuance of new regulations on how to cite Guiding Cases (“GCs”), de facto binding precedents, in subsequent judgments was a milestone in the Chinese legal heritage.

Nevertheless, there are nevertheless some critical thoughts, as the subsequent commentaries examine:
Commentary: The Binding Character of Court Selections in Japan’s Civil Regulation Technique.
Even with the launch of new regulations mandating that GCs be explicitly referred to in subsequent conditions, doubts linger. Many commentators have argued that China, a civil legislation country, have to not comply with the basic principle of stare decisis (i.e., the idea that courtroom conclusions ought to be guided by precedent). Nevertheless, the expertise of fairly a number of other civil legislation jurisdictions reveals the essential role of precedent (see, e.g., the CGCP commentary on precedent in Taiwan). Applying the civil legislation custom of Japan as their concentration, Toshiaki Iimura, Former Chief Decide of Japan’s Mental Home Superior Court, and two other scholars clarify in their commentary entitled The Binding Character of Court Selections in Japan’s Civil Regulation Technique how the basic principle of stare decisis is generally perceived as “even much more pronounced in Japan than in frequent legislation countries”.
Commentary: Guiding Circumstance No. five, Monopoly in China’s Salt Industry and Amendments to the Legislation Regulation and the Administrative Litigation Regulation
The new regulations on citing GCs need Chinese judges to quotation “Main Factors of the Adjudication” of related GCs in subsequent conditions. This requirement prompts one to question how these major factors are organized and what their scope of coverage ought to be. In the commentary entitled Guiding Circumstance No. five, Monopoly in China’s Salt Industry, and Amendments to the Legislation Regulation and the Administrative Litigation Regulation, Dr. Mei Gechlik, CGCP Director, and DAI Di, an legal professional in China, observe that the “Main Factors of the Adjudication” of GC5 are broader than the scope permitted by the facts. Why did the SPC take this stage? How is this associated to its keen fascination in abolishing the monopoly in China’s salt business? Have these major factors been included into the recent amendments to the Legislation Regulation and the Administrative Litigation Regulation? This commentary seeks to solution these thoughts.
