On 28th of May, 2020, the 13th National People's Congress passed the Civil Code, which will take effect on 1 st of January 2021, and it will abolish, among other laws, the General Provisions of the PRC Civil Law, the PRC Marriage Law, the PRC Contract Law, etc.


The new Civil Code is an important milestone in the development of China's legal system, because it not only codifies the fundamental rules of law on civil and commercial matters but also strengthens the protection of citizens' personal rights.


The purpose of this seminar is to introduce the Civil Code and its implication on foreign-related contracts and matters.
