From ‘Trial Management’ to ‘Case Management’

  • Wang FuhuaEmail author
Part of the Ius Gentium: Comparative Perspectives on Law and Justice book series (IUSGENT, volume 31)


The chapter deals with the present case management system in China, which is qualified as ‘trial management’, and the need to change this into case management in the more traditional sense of the word. Trial management in China is currently very much focused on controlling the judges by way of administrative bodies and reducing their powers in relation to the court system as a whole, whereas case management increases the power of individual judges and enhances cooperation between the parties, their lawyers and the court. The author argues that a transition from trial management to case management is needed in China.
