  China is emerging as a leader in the use of legal technology, as it seeks to modernise its justice system to address the country's shortage of skilled and experienced lawyers.According to new figures from Thomson Reuters, the number of patents related to legal technology, or "lawtech", filed globally has risen more than fourfold over the past five years, from 202 in 2013 to 933 last year. More than half — 51 percent — were filed in China last year, while 23 percent were filed in the US and 11 percent in South Korea.(China leads the way in legal technology patents, new figures show, Financial Times)


  China's leading position in filing application in "lawtech" sector proves its constantly improved IP creation capability. Through the operation of contract automation and other related patents, it is conducive for China to modernise its justice system, improve the efficiency of legal services and maximize the value of IPRs.
