Is this a joke?

Here's something: Chinese schools tend to teach their students memorization skills. American schools try (not always successfully) to teach students how to ask questions and synthesize information. Read through the different sub-forum descriptions. If you have questions, find the right category and ask them. Otherwise, you came to the wrong place. You can look up stuff about American legal education on Wikipedia.

American law=closer to Hong Kong and Singaporean law than Chinese law. All three countries' legal systems are based on British common law.

So that should give you some idea. Also, the lawyers I know here in Shenyang studied law in UG, not a JD like we Americans do, and some of them don't even have law degrees. They did an apprenticeship. We aren't allowed to do this anymore in the USA.

So I think the main differences are that we are based on common law, and our legal profession has more standardized procedures for entry than yours (in the mainland) does.

More details? Abovethelaw is a good website, so is the rest of this website, besides the forums.
