A Brief Introduction to China Administrative Law Society (CALS)
China Administrative Law Society (CALS), formerly known as Administrative Law Branch of China Law Society, was founded in August, 1985. The Institution, as the core and backbone of administrative law studies in mainland China, committed to uniting the administrative law scholars in areas of legislation, law enforcement, teaching, scientific research and foreign communication, comprehensively promoting the administration by law, accelerating the construction of a law-based government, improving the academic prosperity and development and finally contributing to the construction of a law-based country.
CALS actively organizes experts and scholars to participate in national legislation work, such as the Administrative Litigation Law, the State Compensation Law, the Administrative Penalty Law, the Legislation Law, the Administrative License Law, and the Administrative Compulsion Law. Recently CALS is focusing on drafting the Administrative Procedure Law and amending the State Compensation Law.
CALS also holds academic seminars, field trips and other activities, which offer a platform for national professors and scholars in administrative law to exchange views and share thoughts. CALS also organizes academic seminars for professors who teach administrative law to discuss important and difficult problems in teaching, as well as share their teaching experience.
