The Mixed Court and the British Supreme Court in Shanghai
This chapter follows the institutionalization of consular jurisdiction after the Opium War, with a special focus on the Mixed Court and British Supreme Court in Shanghai, which were established in the 1860s in order to resolve criminal and civil cases between Britons, Chinese, and other nationalities. A comparison of the Chinese version of treaty texts with other legal sources shows that Qing officials borrowed and adapted long standing Sino-Manchu legal concepts and institutions when they accepted and cooperated in the establishment of the Courts.
