Lawyers’ involvement in law making a new trial for legislature – Xinhua

From Xinhua, via SINA English:

Compared with public hearings and opinion solicitation concerning law making in some Chinese cities, north China’s Tianjin has taken much bolder action by entrusting a local attorney association to draft a local law.

The association is supposed to draft a local law entitled “Measures on Public Hearings of the Tianjin Local Legislature”, and will get 10,000 yuan (about 1,250 US dollars) as payment.

Gao Shaolin, an official of the Standing Committee of the Tianjin Municipal People’s Congress, said it is a new trial for China’s people’s congress system.
