BEIJING - China's Supreme People's Court (SPC) has launched an online service platform for lawyers on judicial justice, rule of law and lawyers'rights.
Lawyers are able to file cases, submit material, follow the progress of cases or contact judges through the platform. It also provides access to digital recordings of past cases.
A database of lawyers and law firms has been established on the platform. At present, over 21,000 law firms and 81,000 lawyers are recorded in the database.
The SPC proposed the platform in March 2015, during the annual meeting of the National People's Congress, China's top legislature.
