The Institute for European Tort Law is pleased to announce a Juristenrunde (lecture) by Hongjie Man, Associate Professor at Shandong University, School of Law, China.
It has been almost four years since the Tort Liability Law of China came into force; Chapter VII of the statute (on the Liability for Medical Malpractice) stopped the chaos brought about by the differences between the 2002 Regulation on the Handling of Medical of Accidents, judicial interpretations promulgated by the Supreme People’s Court (the highest court of China) and the General Principles of Civil Law.
However, there are still many doubts and debates over the new regulations: eg, the standard of fault, the nature of the liability for blood transfusions, the justifications for introducing strict liability and the limitations of informed consent.
The presentation will take place on Wednesday, 21 May 2014 at 10:30am. All are welcome to attend. Please register at: firstname.lastname@example.org
