Criminal Defense in China

Authors: Terence Halliday, Sida Liu, University of Wisconsin, Department of Sociology and School of Law

Terence Halliday and Sida Liu are completing a National Science Foundation funded research program that studies the development of criminal procedure law and practice in China.

The research has three main components:

  • What are the policy debates over China's Criminal Procedure Law?
  • How do lawyers implement criminal procedure law in their everyday practices?
  • And what sorts of international influences shape Chinese criminal procedure law and practice?

The principal findings of the research have been published in several chapters and articles and the forthcoming book (2016), Sida Liu and Terence C. Halliday, Criminal Defense in China: The Politics of Lawyers at Work. (New York: Cambridge University Press).
