Justice Department: Lawyer Must Pledge Allegiance to the Party

The Ministry of Justice of the People's Republic of China issued an ordinance that all practicing lawyers must pledge allegiance to the Communist Party before entering the field.

The ordinance specified that new lawyers who passed the qualify examination and those who were readmitted must take the pledge within three months at places arranged by local Justice Bureaus.

The pledge includes, among others, 'I support the Communist Party's ruling'.
