21:50, December 28, 2011

BEIJING, Dec. 28 (Xinhua) -- Zhou Yongkang, a member of the Standing Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee Political Bureau, has urged lawyers to play a greater role in the efforts to develop a law-governed socialist nation.

Zhou made the remarks Monday at a workshop attended by the newly-elected members of the Eighth Council of the All-China Lawyers Association (ACLA), at the Great Hall of the People in downtown Beijing.

In his speech, Zhou called on council members of the ACLA to unite and lead the country's over 200,000 lawyers by "insisting on a correct political orientation, self-consciously taking social responsibilities, ceaselessly upgrading professional quality, and always following the professional ethics."

"The ACLA is a self-disciplined organization and a bridge between lawyers and the Party and the government," he said, urging it to implement the Law on Lawyers and the just-amended ACLA's constitution.
