BEIJING, Oct. 9 (Xinhua) -- In 2010, China's judicial organs issued regulations on building a case guidance system to standardize judicial acts, a white paper said Tuesday.
Different from the system of case judgment in the common law, China's case guidance system, under the statutory law, uses cases to give directions for the accurate understanding and appropriate application of the provisions of laws, said the white paper "Judicial Reform in China" issued by the State Council Information Office.
In recent years, judicial organs have made public typical cases that are typical in the application of laws as guiding cases and references for judicial personnel at all levels to settle similar cases, said the white paper.
The case guidance system has improved the standardized exercise of judicial discretion, and enhanced uniformity in the application of the law, the white paper said.
