Introduction[edit]

The Case Law of the Republic of China (ROC) is the set of judicial decisions of the Judicial Yuan and its administratively supervised courts. The ROC was based in Mainland China from 1912 to 1949. After Taiwan Retrocession on 25 October 1945, the ROC lost Mainland to the Communists in the Chinese Civil War in 1949 and retreated with its legislative laws, executive regulations, and judicial case law to Taiwan, with Taipei as the latest national capital.

This book annotates and reviews the ROC case law interpreting the laws and regulations. The judicial opinions are sometimes even more important in legal procedures.

Language disclaimer[edit]

As the ROC officially speaks Mandarin Chinese only, English translations are for informal reference only. In case of formal legal needs, the original traditional Chinese versions shall always prevail. This book does not provide legal advice.

Copyright information[edit]

Article 9 of the Copyright Act in effect in Taiwan [1]:

......

The term "official documents" in the first subparagraph of the preceding paragraph includes proclamations, text of speeches, news releases, and other documents prepared by civil servants in the course of carrying out their duties."
