Chen Xinqiang, member of the Party Group and Director of the Office of Personnel Supervision, and Cai Zhimin, full-time inspector, participated in the discussion and exchange.
President Tian Xuedong said that in order to implement the Party Central Committee's basic strategy of governing the country according to law in an all-round way and promote the construction of a legal professional community, the Guangdong Lawyers Association organized various municipal lawyers' associations to carry out the activities of recommending outstanding units in the work of safeguarding lawyers' professional rights. He pointed out that by recommendation of the Zhuhai Lawyers Association and upon appraisal of the Guangdong Lawyers Association, the Hengqin Court was cited as having played a very good role in the period of 2017-2018 in promoting the implementation of the system for improving the security inspection of lawyers' access to and exit from the People's Court and fully guaranteed the lawyers' relevant professional rights. He expressed his thanks to the Hengqin Court for all this.
In order to safeguard lawyers' rights of litigation according to law, the Hengqin Court, as indicated in the Letter of Thanks, has not only facilitated the security inspection for lawyers, but also offered other conveniences for lawyers' practice. For example, in the Litigation Services Center, visiting lawyers are specially provided with Internet computers, scanners and other equipment to make lawyers' online filing and access to information convenient, thus improving the efficiency of litigation services.
