Public Law Dispute Resolution

The rights and the obligations between the people and the State are at the core of public law cases. Public law protects fundamental human rights and was conceived to regulate the government's conduct of its duties. As a reflection of the people's heightened awareness of human rights, in 2009 the Legislative Yuan of Taiwan officially recognized the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and the International Covenant on Economic Social and Cultural Rights, propelling the protection of human rights in Taiwan to a new milestone.

The Constitution, a bastion of human rights protection, is the source from which all laws originate. No law may defy the principles of the Constitution. In recent years, better public awareness of constitutional laws has led to a spike in the number of constitutional interpretation cases. Lee and Li, Attorneys-at-Law has long dedicated itself to the promotion of human rights and the fundamental rights guaranteed by the Constitution. And through the many petitions for constitutional interpretation, the firm has challenged unfairness and inequality with the ultimate purpose of improving the legal system. In early 2013, the Judicial Yuan passed the Draft Amendment to the Constitutional Interpretation Procedure Act, stipulating specific rules to apply for constitutional interpretation, which greatly underscores the importance of the role and the experience of lawyers in the application process. Guided by the firm's Vice-Chairman Nigel N. T. Li, the Public Law Dispute Resolution Team has petitioned for constitutional interpretations and authored opinions on constitutional laws, which have prompted the Grand Justices to render many seminal and monumental interpretations. Our achievements have made us the recognized pioneer in the field, ensured that the Constitution in practice protects the rights of the people, and improved Taiwan's constitutional system.
