In recent years, the strategic relationship between the EU, Germany and China as mutual cooperation partners has developed rapidly. The People's Republic and the European association of states are already close partners in the economic and trade sectors. In the last two years, negotiations of the EU-China Investment and Free Trade Agreement have been pushed forward in order to establish a legal system for a common economic and trade area.
The Research Center of Innovation and Legal Studies between China and Europe (RICE) under the direction of Professor Dr. Thomas M.J. Möllers sees itself as a link between German, European and Chinese jurisprudence and legal practice. In addition to its associate members, the Research Center is supported by our Chinese visiting professors.
The Chinese edition of the book "Legal Methods" has attracted much attention and an enthusiastic response from readers after its publication in China at the end of July 2022. The Chinese news of 31 December 2022 reported that the book won two prizes at the China Law Book Awards.
First, the book was ranked No. 1 by Peking University Press as the best-designed law book among hundreds of law books in 2022 because of its design.
Secondly, the Dewey Law Commune, a public WeChat platform with great renown in China's legal community, selected the ten most influential books on the rule of law in China for that year. Legal Methods was also chosen.
