Categories: China Legal Trends

On 1 July 2023, China’s Supreme People’s Court (SPC) launched LawAnswers.cn (法答网).

LawAnswers is an internal information-sharing platform provided by the SPC to facilitate legal consultation and knowledge sharing for personnel working in courts at all levels nationwide, addressing questions related to legal applications and judicial matters.

In other words, the website serves as a Q&A platform for all courts in China and can be seen as the Chinese equivalent of Quora for the judiciary.
