In this instance, top ten influential cases that changed China, as published in Nanfang Zhoumo (Southern Weekend). The process by which the cases are selected is too complicated to explain here; it's explained in the report. It involves nomination of cases by legal experts and voting on them via the internet by anyone who's interested. Here are the cases (no time for full commentary, I'm afraid; click on links for more information). Not all are actual cases in the sense of involving courtroom litigation, but they bear on the legal system in some way. The list (it's in Chinese) includes comments by legal experts and others. The links below are all to English-language sources.
