Human Rights Watch report on restrictions on Chinese lawyers

On December 11, Human Rights Watch released a report entitled "A Great Danger for Lawyers": New Regulatory Curbs on Lawyers Representing Protesters [download | web link]. The report focuses on the  All-China Lawyers' Association "Guidance Opinion on the Undertaking by Lawyers of Mass Cases" (中华全国律师协会关于律师办理群体性案件指导意见) issued last March and previously discussed on this blog. It also contains an English translation of the Guidance Opinion. For the New York Times story, click here.
