“Legal History on Display at the China Court Museum,” The Beijinger

New post for The Beijinger on my visit to the (more or less) recently opened China Court Museum.


Legal History on Display at the China Court Museum

Beijing has no shortage of quirky museums. There are museums to tap water, honeybees, and hutongs. To this list, we can now add the recently opened China Court Museum, a monument of sorts to the country’s commitment to the rule of law.  The museum is tucked into a corner of the Legation Quarter and will be of interest to legal scholars, connoisseurs of irony, or anyone interested in re-litigating some of China’s more high profile cases from the past century.
