Zhejiang Court Judicial Transparency Index Report (2015)
In 2015, the Innovation Project Team on the Rule of Law Index of the Institute of Law of Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, authorized by Zhejiang Higher People’s Court, continued the judicial openness evaluation on the 105 courts of three levels in the province from the perspectives of disclosure of judicial affairs, case filing and court trial, judgment documents and enforcement information. The evaluation results showed that, courts at all levels in Zhejiang province well integrated judicial transparency and court authority regulation, and reported overall improvement in judicial openness. However, imparities were found in specific evaluation indicators and between the courts. In the following years, efforts should be made to push ahead judicial openness and elevate judicial capabilities through informatization.
