Updated: 2014-10-21 17:03

Editor's note: For the first time, the rule of law has been adopted as a major topic by a plenary session of the CPC Central Committee.

The Fourth Plenum of the 18 th Central Committee of the CPC, which lasts from Oct 20 to Oct 23, will focus on a draft decision covering "major issues concerning comprehensively advancing the rule of law".

Here are the voices of those who may have a deeper understanding of the necessity of law for China and the preciousness of justice.
