This special issue of the University of Pennsylvania Asian Law Review builds on the journal’s proud tradition of presenting noteworthy articles addressing important aspects of law in contemporary China, and reflects the evolution of English-language scholarship on Chinese law during the fifteen years since this journal began publication as the University of Pennsylvania East Asia Law Review. This collection appears at a fraught and possibly pivotal time for Chinese law and the context in which it operates. The authors in this issue address and respond to aspects of the defining issues of this critical moment.
