A Chinese political advisor urged to raise the standard of professionalism of judges. Currently, a number of judges do not have an adequate educational background and are not up to the professional standard. Statistics from judicial authorities in southwest China’s Sichuan Province indicate that judges account for 54.8 percent of the total number of courts staff, but only 2 percent of the judges hold a master degree in law, nearly half of them do not have a bachelor degree. “Courts should increase salary and improve welfare for high-calibre judges who have been frequently reported to resign and become high-income lawyers”, said Wu Zhengde, vice chairman of the Central Committee of the China Democratic League.
