The Rule of Law: Formal and Informal Requirements | University of Chicago Center in Beijing

Event Details

What is required to create a judicial system that respects the rule of law? In this talk, Professor Gerald N. Rosenberg of the University of Chicago Law School will examine the formal, structural requirements for a judicial system that embodies the rule of law. In addition, he will highlight the equally important informal practices and culture that make the judicially-supported rule of law synonymous with courts in the United States. Finally, Rosenberg will distinguish between the rule of law and judicial review, suggesting that China could adopt the former without the latter.
