The Department of Chinese Legal Culture at the University of Cologne is the most established center of excellence in research and teaching of Chinese law in continental Europe. The approach practiced by researchers in the Department of Chinese Legal Culture combines doctrinal legal analysis with an emphasis on the context within which the law operates. In terms of the research and teaching, it covers, inter alia, constitutional and administrative law, criminal and criminal procedure law, judicial reforms, the social credit system and Chinese positions on international law. The Department of Chinese Legal Culture maintains a wide network of cooperation partners in Mainland China and Hong Kong. It frequently hosts conferences and workshops on timely and relevant issues of Chinese law and innovative research approaches. Together with the European China Law Studies Association, the Department of Chinese Legal Culture has initiated the European Chinese Law Research Hub that shares widely current and important research on Chinese law.
