Aibin Zhao introduced the background and significance of the cooperation between two parties. Zhao said, “Qinhuangdao Municipal Intermediate People’s Court was identified as the trial court for the reform of family trials by the Supreme People’s Court of PRC in April 2016. Lately, our court shared experience as a pilot at the Joint Conference on Family Trial Reform, and ‘Qinhuangdao Mode’ of family trial had been promoted in Hebei. Family trial reform is an important part of the comprehensive reform of judicial system, and it is significant according to the guidelines concerning the modernization of governance system and capability from the 19th Session of National Congress of the Communist Party of China. YSU has abundant theoretical and practical experience in the field of law theory and psychology research. The cooperation today is a new breakthrough to establish the teaching base of legal practice, and a beneficial practice to construct 10 psychological guidance mechanisms including family trial mechanism on the basis of existing cooperation.”

Huajun Hu said, “Family trial reform is a systematic social project, and it is difficult to achieve the results only by the effort of court. It needs multi-sectoral collaboration and multiple-system linkage, especially to solve the professional problems in the family trial reform with the help of professional force.”
