Firstly, Professor Fu pointed out that in order to promote the judicial reform, we should pay more attention to the interference of letters and visiting system on the independence of the judiciary, as well as the contradiction between various parties. Besides, she also said that scholars should play a greater role in judicial reform.
Then, the professors had discussions on the themes of judicial publicity, media’s role in judicial practice, the discretion of judges in continental law system, the structure of circuit court and the prospect of young lawyers.
