The Conclusion highlights the main arguments in each chapter and uses “the legal asymmetry” to demonstrate the inequality of law between citizens and powerful officials. While local officials could violate law at will without fear of being punished, ordinary people had to adopt mainly legal methods to defend their legal rights. It is because the law is under control of political power and there is no the rule of law.

Keywords:   Legal asymmetry, the rule of law, judicial reform
