Abstract

Many countries, especially developing countries, have experienced the difficulty of the functioning of the judiciary systems and have come to the awareness of the importance of reforming the court system.1 Obviously, delays, backlogs and uncertainty associated with unexpected court outcomes have diminished the quality of justice.2 The Chinese courts system, as well known publicly, faces the same problems as many other developing counties. Court congestion and delay, corruption in the judiciary, and miscarriage of justice, have been heavily criticized by the public, as well as the difficulties in law enforcement.3
