This Article addresses how the procedural, educational, and professional changes in China’s legal system have affected criminal trial procedure and criminal trial practice in the country. It discusses how these changes have created a need for Chinese criminal judges, prosecutors, and defense attorneys to be well versed in the adversarial process. It describes how the China Trial Advocacy Institute, a collaborative project between Renmin University of China School of Law and Indiana University School of Law-Indianapolis, has developed to help address this emerging need.
