A small project that makes historic contributions…
The CGCP was established in February 2011. Since then, we have made significant progress. Some of our latest recognition and achievements include:
- 1. In a speech on judicial openness, ZHOU Qiang, President of the Supreme People’s Court (“SPC”), mentioned our work. An English translation of his words is available on our homepage.
- 2. The World Bank has just selected the CGCP to have a panel entitled The Role of ‘Precedent’/Guiding Cases in the Effective Application, Interpretation, and Implementation of Law during its Law, Justice and Development Week (November 16-19, 2015). Dr. Mei Gechlik, Founder and Director of the CGCP, will be joined by top judges/practitioners from mainland China, Japan, Taiwan and the U.S. in presenting the CGCP’s work and related experiences.
- 3. Some members of the 150-strong CGCP team have shared kind words about their experience with the CGCP.
- 4. The CGCP team has been hard at work revamping our website for better search functionality, allowing scholars and practitioners to more effectively conduct GC-related research. We expect the new website to launch this fall.
We thank all parties for recognizing our efforts. We try to make historic contributions at a time when the SPC specifically requests judges to cite GCs in similar, subsequent cases.
Knowing the legal issues that will impact one’s life is a right, not a privilege. That’s why we firmly believe that our knowledge-base of high-quality products should be available to all for free. But this big goal can’t be achieved on a small budget.The CGCP is operating on a shoestring budget and is facing even less for 2016. You can help by making a donation today.
For every dollar donated, a generous sponsor will match your donation, up to $5k. We hope this marks the beginning of more offers for matching donations. For sponsorship opportunities or large-scale partnerships, please contact Dr. Mei Gechlik directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
New positions are available…
We are proud to announce the creation of two new CGCP Editor opportunities: Type D Candidates, who will primarily perform legal research in Chinese; and Type E Candidates, who can lend their technical expertise to improve our website and knowledge-base (or with other relevant skills – grant-writing and fundraising experience are also welcome!). We also need more volunteers with excellent language skills—in Chinese or English—to work on our publications (Type A, B, and C Candidates). A full description of all positions and application instructions can be found here.
