Extract

The amendment of the Civil Procedure Law, passed in October, 2007, lists ‘jurisdictional error’ as one of the causes for retrial (Article 179, Section 1, Item 7), a move of pioneering significance not only in Civil Procedure Law history in China, but also rare in other countries. The author holds that this provision marks great progress in China’s legislature, deserving of full recognition, and that it should be kept in the future. In the meantime, we shall conduct more research on the application of the provision.
