From the Paper:

"In the past, there was no jurisprudential distinction between criminal and civil law. Civil disputes dealing with land and family matters were generally settled through mediation. In traditional China, the emperor was vested with judicial, executive, and legislative powers. The laws created by the emperor were binding on all of his subjects, but the same law did not bind the emperor. The emperor was the supreme judicial power, and as such, could modify the judgments given by lower judicial authorities, determine the guilt of accused individuals, and dictate the penal sentence."
