BEIJING, Oct. 27 (Xinhua) -- China has put in place a socialist legal system of laws with Chinese characteristics by the end of 2010, says a white paper issued by the Chinese government Thursday.

Headed by the Constitution, with laws related to the Constitution, civil and commercial laws and several other branches as the mainstay,the system of laws also consists of laws, administrative regulations, local regulations and other tiers of legal provisions, says the white paper.

It says the establishment of the socialist legal system of laws is an important milestone in China's development of socialist democracy and the legal system.

By the end of August 2011, the Chinese legislature had enacted 240 effective laws including the current Constitution, 706 administrative regulations, and over 8,600 local regulations, according to the white paper.
