Research Thesis Topic
Legal reforms in South East Asia and the benefits of legal transplants
This project squarely discuss legal reforms that are inspired by overseas experiences in one of these legal systems: China, Hong Kong, Japan, South Korea, Singapore, and Thailand. These legal systems are leading the legal development of their surrounding nations . There is a need to ensure that there are clear guidelines/procedures on the method/s that legal transplants are to be implemented.Legal reforms must be assessed in their sociological context and that includes an evaluation of the way norms interact with stakeholders, legal practitioners, and the judiciary. This assessment should not be confused with an evaluation of the success of a legal transplant. As Harding points, the success of a legal transplant can be measured by assessing its implementation and transplants can certainly fail. The thesis will consider law reforms as ‘driver of change’ that , among others sociological and political elements,seek to increase the competitiveness of national economies.
